Which multi-function printers are compatible with macs and least likely to be hacked?

I have had repeated hacking of my computers and am concerned printers and faxes may also have been used to gain access to information about me.  I'm trying to build the best computer defense.  I'm in the market for a new multifunction printer and am wondering if there are any that have a reputation for security.  I am unable to get any information about this from pc magazine or other review sources.

If you get a printer that doesn't have a builtin LAN or Wireless LAN adapter there is no danger of you getting hacked via the printer. If it has Wireless, connect it to the Access Point using WPA2 and use a very long passphrase that uses caps and normal characters and mixed with numbers, something that can't be found in any dictionaries. Then it will also be safe so long you don't leak the passphrase out.

HP's printers are usually very good when it comes to compatibility with not so common OS's. Canon on the other hand don't have such a good reputation...

Rule #1: change default passwords on everything. I don't know how many printers I've tried admin/admin on and it worked.
