Help on choosing a printer for 10 users, medium amount of printing

Hey Experts!!

We are going to be replacing our main printer which is an HP 1320N.  It's a good printer, but the problem is that it's kind of slow at first, then it can barely hold one ream of paper. The best thing about it though, it's been durable!  
We are now looking to replace it, because we've kind of outgrown it.  I am now looking at the HP LaserJet P4014.  What would the experts recommend?????? I want laser, b&w, possible auto duplex (if the price is right) and fast speed.  

Any recommendations???

That model is good but if you can afford the extra money i would get the HP LaserJet 4350
weve had its predescessor the 4250 and they have been rock solid and reliuable for th 3 years weve had them.
We have 15 of them and have never had a problem even though they are used constantly and not maintained as such.

Wow!  Expensive.  They are nice though. Actually a company that we do a lot of work for does have teh 4250's and have not had one complaint about them.  I fear though, that the 4350 is out of my price range.  
I would say my limit is around $800-$ long as the higher end ones have enough features that I can sell to the boss. :)

I'm not to sure I want to buy off of ebay for my company. While I personally never had an issue, I don't think my company would appreciate me putting out the company credit card out there.  Although, I would love to grab the 4350 for our company, it's quite a bit out of my price range.  
It does seem that HP is the choice for printers around here though huh? Any more suggestions?????
