Just a thanks to all who responded. WalMart - HP F4240 - 69.97 US  ! The 
printer cartridges are 30 US. I almost got an HP 1520,  that printer 
would have been cheaper than the ink cartridges it took.... simply 
replace the printer when it was out of ink! The 4240 print quality is 
good enough for my half blind eyes. And it installed PnP! I was very 
pleased.

Now, can anyone recommend a PDA that will sync up painlessly? I have had 
zero success with my lifedrive. Either Kontact or Evolution, at this 
point I don't care. That's the only thing I reboot to windows for at 
this point.

Thanks again for everyone's input.

Michael
