Hi all,

I am looking for a printer with the lowest Total Cost of Ownership in the 
long run (Printer + Toner).

This is for personal use and I print documents very infrequently 
(directions, recipes etc) .. and will use it for printing about 5 pages a 

Need a very basic printer. Do not need high resolution.
Linux compatibility desirable but can be sacrificied if a cheaper Windows 
only printer is available.

0. Which printer will cost the least ?
1. Do you recommend a used printer ?
2. Is there a specific place in Atlanta to look for them(used) ?
3. Is third party toner availability important ?
4. How expensive would it be to have a printer with a duplexer unit (print 
on both sides)

Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated.
