    I'm looking for an inexpensive wireless b/w laser printer to go with new iMac running 10.6.3. The HP would look better on my desk because it looks nice with my Epson Artisan 810. Forums seem to have posts complaining about difficulty of setting up both for wireless.
    Thank you in advance for any replies.

    Welcome to the Forum. While i have no experience with those 2 models, i have found that Brother is less drama than HP and Canon when wireless on a Mac

    Thank you for your reply. Less drama would be good.
    The Brother model is listed on the compatible printers list for OS 10.6 on Apple's website. This specific HP model is not, but I understand that the list may not be completely up to date. From what I read in the forums, wireless connection presents so much more difficulty than wired.
