As for the price, I'm thinking of 100 000 HUF (about 400 EUR) as *very*

My suggestion would be a used HP LaserJet 4050, preferably with a
JetDirect network interface. I've used them as network printers for
FreeBSD with excellent results, they're built well and cheap to run.
Have not tried toner refilling, though.
You could probably buy a color laser with mostly-empty "starter" toner
