Scanner advice please

I want to buy a scanner to scan old photographs and other items to use in graphic design. I want something that will give reasonably good resolution so I can print out. I use a Mac. Any suggestions?

just about any modern printer/scanner will scan in VERY high res .....

*All* of the detail in a photograph (positive print) will be picked up by a 300dpi scan (colour) or 400dpi (greyscale).

You only need go higher when scanning negatives.
