Thank you very much for your suggestion. It seems like a very nice printer.
And I actually like the idea of a laser compared to inkjet. But for now,
both the physical size and the price are too much. So I have too keep
looking for another FreeBSD compatible solution (though it mostly - and
certainly for scanning purposes - will be used with Windows).

Jon
