Hi I am a new user and am looking for some ideas re the best option printer to buy for air print. Can now print from my iPad via the computer but want a basic stand alone printer which I can access directly from my iPad without having to have mt computer switched on. Any ideas. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the Forum!

I bought a new printer only a month ago, a HP Photosmart 6510 and it prints straight from the iPad, no computer involved, which is just great for me. I purchased it at an Apple store as they had a special deal at the time when I also purchased a MacBook Pro. There were quite a few different models available which all printed straight from the iPad.
