should be of good quality and be robust)

As for the price, I'm thinking of 100 000 HUF (about 400 EUR) as *very*
maximum. The price is important, but the first point is more important at

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
