I recently acquired an Epson CX7800 all-in-one which works great for
printing and scanning (and copying too, but no drivers required for
that). The printer is a CPU-hog so on my older computer printing is
slow. From my newer laptop it's great. Scanning works up to some
ridiculously high resolutions which I was pleasantly surprised at.
