Looking for an AIO fax, scanner, copier with a color laser printer for my new business.
Can anyone recommend an affordable and reliable model?

Should I be considering non-laser?

NewEgg is a great place to look. Here are couple that won't break the bank:

If you're not printing color everyday, it might make more sense to go monochrome. Color toner gets very expensive, and it might be cheaper to have a separate color ink-jet.

How many PCs are you using in your business? Do you need workgroup funcionality?

Thanks for the suggestions.

For now only two PC's, but maybe up to four in the next 6 months.

For an AIO non-color laser, what would you recommend?

I would probably recommend this one because of the network port and is heavier duty than your typical home MFC AIO. Makes it really easy to share this between PCs.

This one has built in wireless if don't want to have to build it into your network, and it's better suited for lighter workloads. Depends again on your expected use of it's printing and fax receiving. If you're going to be faxing out more than in and light printing, this might be perfect.

It's hard to go wrong with Lasers! My only advice is to try and find one with a network card built in. While it's pretty easy to network a computer and share the printer, using a built in network card can save headaches down the road! Let me know if you'd like a recommendation on one of those as well. Good luck!

The last two you recommended were not lasers.
Do you have any MFP/AIO mono laser recs?

Oops! Sorry!
This one I have used in the workplace and is a pretty good deal. I don't know how you feel about "recertified" but it might be a good one. I didn't read into it too much, just make sure it comes with everything. (It should)

If not, this is the cheapest new one with a network card built in: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16828115137

And this is the cheapest without one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16828115138

I have always had great luck with HP printers. We use thousands at work (literally). Good luck!
