My husband and I are planning a 3 month vacation trip across the US this summer but one of us (that would be me!) will need to work remotely while traveling...(thus rendering the term "vacation" as relative) requiring me to have a computer and printer/scanner/copier. Any recommendations for a small compact all-in-one unit that we should consider (and for which we can readily get ink cartridges)?

Thanks!

I have the Lexmark printer the black is only $4.95 a cartridge and the color is in a group of three and it cost about $33 at wal mart. the black at wal mart is more than office maxx. the model is Pinnacle pro 901. I think you can print about 500 sheets on one black ink

We use the Kodak. I have an ESP 9 in the RV and a 6150 at home. The primary advantage for us if the relatively cheap cost of ink refills. You couldn't ask for anything better. They are also wireless.

I too have the Lexus Pinnacle Pro 901. While not perfect (haven't found one that is yet) it's pretty reliable, has a FIVE year warranty, and the black cartridges are indeed only $5 for 500 pages of print. Impossible to beat. Bought one for myself and my brother as a Christmas present.

My HP 7510 is pretty small. It is an all in one and wireless to boot. So no need for it to be connected to anything except 120VAC.

Stay away from the Kodak printers, especially the ESP series. They claim cheaper on ink, but in real life the machine counts the number of copies you have made, and informs you it needs a new cartridge, even though it might still be only half empty. Also, you must buy proprietary Kodak cartridges, as they are chipped. And once it deems a cartridge is empty, everything ceases to function; you can't even scan something into your computer unless you buy a new cartridge. I've already spent more on cartridges in three months than the machine is worth. And they are a "clunky" machine, always making lots of clunking and clicking sounds before it'll print.
But if you really, really want one, you can have mine, only three months old, real cheap! I've replaced it with a Brother.
