I brought a laser printer from Lotus Trading In Oaks Estate.  It is a 
Lexmark Optra R+ and I'm quite wrapped in it.  It has network and 
parallel support and is supported under linux.  Give them a try for a 
second hand printer or give Cougar computers a try for a new one.  There 
service is really good and they provide a 3 year warranty on all stuff bought
