Check out this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=236907 from the gist of it, looks like an HP printer is the way to go.

Depends on how much you're happy to splash out ;} and what
cost per colour page you're going to find acceptable. If
money is no objective I can highly recommend the Canon
IR series...

HP 2600n works with linux, and is cheap, though replacement toner costs nearly as much as the printer (and it ships with nearly-empty toner). That said, I think it is OK value for money.
