I have used a lot of HP printers because they use Postscript and their own 
graphics language which is also supported, and because I've had good luck with 
their scanners working, and they seem pretty reliable, and HP keeps the toner 
available for a long time. If you just want b/w the 1320 has been good to me.

I have a lot of other HP stuff working with Linux, an old SCSI scanner (legal 
size, not letter), and one of their big 11x17 printers for large stuff.
