Laser printers

Hello. I am running Mandrake 10.1. I want to buy some cheap laser printer for my domestic needs, and I spotted HP LASERJET 1020 that appealed to me with its 135 euros price. But HP pre-sell help desk warns me that they don't think it is compatible with a LINUX system because it is an "entry level "printer.

What does that mean? Is there anybody that can counsel me on which item I can safely buy?

I would advise you to spend some time at
and look through the information there. The HP Laserjet 1020 is listed as 'mostly working'. There are some very good rcomondations on that site.

Hope this helps.
