If I had the money, I would go for the LaserJet 2200 series without second thoughts. Unlike all the other printer makers, I trust
HP and they have always supported the Mac.
The USB-only 2200dse is $799, which is not unreasonable. But the networkable 2200DN is $1199 (again <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00005AV82/qid%3D1012083477/ref%3Dsr%5F11%5F0%5F1/102-8716758-6569739

The LaserJet 1200N, which is the low-end network printer comes in at a more reasonable $599. But the network print module is external and the 1200-series don't have PostScript. In terms of price the two Brother printers referenced above are really tough to beat.
I guess you really pay for HP's support and reputation. HP is great for a business environment where cost is secondary. But at home, where price matters, HP is out of reach for most of us.
[Edit: Had to correct pricing after some more research.]
