You’ll find that many of today’s printers, which utilize USB, will let you print from a Mac, you have to be sure drivers are included with the printer which were written specifically for a Mac.
Mac Printer Reviews
Hewlett Packard PSC 2410 Photosmart
I’ve included an all-in-one that will work with either the Mac or a PC. It’s a higher end model, and costs accordingly at around $300. You’ll get laser quality text and very high quality color. I prefer a flatbed for scanning, which it has. Another nice touch is you can fax in color. That won’t do you any good though if you’re faxing to a B & W fax machine. This is a nice home-office solution for most any Mac user.
Epson Photo R800
This puppy can whip out a high quality 5" x 7" photo in about 45 seconds. For the speed freak, you’ll also get USB 2.0 and FireWire ®. True borderless printing at up to 8" x 10". Like some of the other Epson printers, it adds the ability to print to a CD/DVD. The 8 color ink method will give you some very vivid, high quality prints that it claims will last 100 years. None of the photos it has printed are that old yet, so who knows? You’ll pay for all these snazzy features though, between $325 and $400. I confess though, a lot of Mac users do photo work, and I’d lean towards this printer if that were my situation.
Here’s a printer you can pickup for your Mac that is less then $100. It works with OS X, like most others. It has pretty good speed and quality. They tout the Accu-Feed assembly virtually eliminates paper jams, which are normally pretty frequent with this type of paper feed setup. I’ve never been fond of this type of setup though, but if you’re budget minded and just need to print occasional letters and photos for the family, it’ll do.
