Can anyone recommend a cheap laser printer that works with AIrport Extreme?

I'm looking for a low-cost laser printer to work with my Airport Extreme base station (the latest model). I'm open to suggestions of either color or mono printers. I currently have an HP laserjet 1320 mono printer, which doesn't work with the Airport, despite being less than 2 years old. Not only that, but HP don't have a driver available for my new Intel iMac, which means I have to use the generic driver and can't use features such as the duplexer. Very annoying!

Any suggestions gratefully received!

    Check out Brother printers. They usually have pretty good Mac support.

    P.S. I have an old network-ready Brother 1070N to which I print wirelessly and it has worked flawlessly for years.

    I completely forgot about ZTerm, by the way. That is a really venerable Mac program. I used to use it before the internet to dial into bulletin boards using a 2.4k modem (state of the art!) using a 25 MHz Mac IIcx and OS 6.08!

    hehe Just like i have a dell monitor right now, the 3100cn is a very well ranked color laser and reasonably priced though you have to spend another 149 for wireless over the base price.
