I need a new printer, a Mac friendly one.
I don't do lots of printing, but would like a decent one rather than something that will break in 13 months time.
It needs to be fully compatible with my MacBook Pro wirelessly as well as work with iPhone 4S/5's and iPads. Ideally I'm looking to spend up to 150.

Any recommendations ?

Being Mac friendly is important. I usually recommend Epson, Canon, and HP since all three generally keep their drivers for OS X current. Plus they're fairly easy to setup as wireless.

I have a Brother HL-2280DW wireless laser printer ($99 on sale). I've had it for about 2 years now...and has worked great. FWIW...I'm not a big fan of Samsung products.

+1 on the Brother Laser printer.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

I use the Epson 645 and it has performed very well for my MBP, iPhone and a Dell computer all connected thru a wireless network.
