    I need to replace my HP Officejet J4680 and I'm probably gonna go ahead and get an AirPrint printer. I want to keep it under $150, with print/scan/copy. Any suggestions? I'm kind of leaning towards getting away from HP, as it seems like I've had more problems with them than success over the years, but feel free to comment on that too, I'm open to be persuaded. Thanks!

    Edit: Duplex printing would be NICE but is not necessary, and I'm assuming normal wireless print capabilities come with all AirPrint compatible ones.

    I've tried HP and Epson, and they both work good... I talked to a salesperson at Microcenter about it, and he liked HP's line of wi-fi printers. I've used them on an Android phone as well as an ipad and they both were fine.

    I have the Canon MG 5220 and really like it. It's wireless performance is flawless, and it takes third-party carts, which really keeps the cost down. Scanning is decent; no OCR, but it will create a PDF that is of good quality.

    Officejet 6500A comes in at ~$150 and though I've never used Airprint beyond testing it, it is an advertised feature and it did work first time after a firmware upgrade. Airprint aside it's a respectable printer in my opinion.

    The 6600 seems to be out for the same price, no idea whether it's a better buy tho.
