I need to buy an office printer - we currently have a Konica Minolta 1490MF but the drivers only support up to 10.5 and we have 10.6 and I can't find any way to make it work (10.5 drivers don't work)

Can anyone recommend a printer that will work with both 10.6 and Windows XP/7?

It should be a black and white laser printer with FAX, Scan, Print, network - Does anyone have the same set up with a printer that fits this?

Any new printer you buy nowadays should support Mac OS 10.6, Windows XP, and Windows 7. Here some Black & White HP Laser printers which also have the functionalities you would like - they are called "All-in-Ones"

Hi Aphus

When looking at the specs of some printers it only shows support for 10.3-10.5, we've been burned by this before which is why I was hoping for specific recommendations. I think I've found one though, we'll have to see!
