Multifunctional ink/laser printer, but which one?

Hi,

I´m looking  for a multifunction printer to be used with my Apple enviroment. (MacBook Pro) but I´m not sure which one choose.

I need wifi scanner and, of course, printer.

Two options:

HP Officejet 6700
Epson expression photo xp-750

Any advise?

Home enviroment printer!!

I like Brother products and would recommend the MFC-9130CW.  Its a colour laser printer/scanner/copier with wireless AND AIRPRINT so you can print to it from your iphone or ipad.

I agree with JohnnyCanuck. I have a Brother printer as well (MFC-490CW - inkjet). I can purchase ink (black - cyan - magenta -yellow) separately or 3-pack (colors) or 4-pack (BW & colors). I believe that the Brother printers have the least expensive ink.
Based on you options I would go with the HP.

But given the secret third choice i would go with Canon PIXMA MG7150/7120.
This is just given the needs of printing and scanning over wifi from an Apple computer.

I'd go for the Epson since there are a lot of reports of problems to connect the HP Officejet 6700 wireless.

Here's an Apple article on setting up your printer:

Hi Mislead,


It looks  fine but, paper feeder?
Hello,

The printer takes 20 photo papers at the top, and 125 regular papers in the lower cassette.
Ah sorry, I probably misread your question.
No there is no DF, document feeder, on this model.

@heze54

None of our advise helpt you? Since you chose your own last question as the answer to this question?
As everyone seems to agree that accepting his last question should not be an "answer", I'm lodging an objection. heze54  should either accept a real answer or, if none of them were of any value, delete the question.
