I don't think they make one like that, sorry.

what printer would you recommend for me!

Hard to say. I don't like HP. You will have to google/bing up some reviews or comparisons. Here is one example that might do you, Epson SX435w,

Stationary Warehouse have an Epson NX130 at the moment for $42.If you buy compatible catridges here on TM or from someone like Ink Venus you will save heaps consumables.

Alternatively you could refill your own.

PSI don't like HP either.

Brothers and Epsons have served us well over the years.

Recently got a Brother MFC with an ADF which sits on the network.Managed to find the link to get it doing scan to email which is excellent inside the home :-

Rates bill arrives - scan to email (no need to turn the computer on or connect anything) then recycle the paper work.

Start my computer up later, check email and there is the rates bill in my email ready to be sorted, stored and backed up.

Do you print only black and white! Maybe a cheap laser printer will do. Yeah the start up cost is more than your typical ink jet but in the long run it will save you alot of money.

Get one like mine. Bought a Laserjet 1100 for $5 on TM. Will be picking up tomorrow. hope it has a bit of toner left.
