    Let's Talk ePrinters?

    I have 4.2.1 working fine so now I want a new printer. I should be able to get a good deal on Black Friday. So anyway I want an eprinter that I can print from the iPad. I went to HP's site and looked a three of theirs, the E710n, C310a and the C410a. I would like to keep the cost below $200 is possible. I have a PC with windows 7. I also have the Apple Airport Extreme Base Station. I think that Airport Extreme let's you connect your printer to it but I don't know how that works. That's why I just thought that I would get an eprinter. Does anyone have a good suggestion?

    I bought an Epson workforce 610 about a month ago that I am able to print with 3.2. I am in the middle of downloading 4.2 so I have not tried it, but would expect better performance.

    List of current Airprint-capable printers

    Here's a list I found this morning in an article from Compuworld:

    For the moment, AirPrint works with the following printers:
    • HP Photosmart Premium Fax e-All-in-One Printer - C410
    • HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One Printer series - C310
    • HP Photosmart Plus e-All-in-One Printer series - B210
    • HP Envy 100 e-All-in-One Printer Series - D410
    • HP Photosmart eStation Printer series - C510
    • And the Epson Artisan 835 all-in-one.
    I was surprised to see the Epson on there - it's an older model. I had been looking at the HP C510, but it's a bit pricey - though it does have that snazzy ANDROID TABLET on it - like we need another tablet!!! HAHA...

    I just got off a chat session with HP and was sent this link. Some work now, some will require a firmware upgrade available 12/27/10:

    Both of those are good links. I'm going to buy a printer on Black Friday. I want the best for the least money. I'll be looking at the sales flyers in Thursday's paper.

    Consider the inks used as well...

    Some of the printers listed use a 2-cartridge set-up: one black and one with tri-color cartridge. I hate those because when you run out of, say, magenta, you toss the cartridge even though there is ink in the other two colors left. Grrrr... I think the HP Envy 100 uses a black and tri-color cartridge. Not a big deal if you don't print much, but if you print a ton, it can be a pain and expensive.

    Also, the ability to use larger cartridges instead of the smaller "standard" ones is good.

    The major cost of printers isn't the hardware, it's the ink. That's where the printer companies make their money - probably should be called ink companies!

    Not needing a new printer yet myself - but if I did, I'd also consider the normal printer issues along with Airprint compatibility as well.

    It is a 2 cartridge setup but they seem to last quite a while if thats any consolation

    and color use has been extremely uniform:
