I am going to get a new printer at home. I used to have a NeXTprinter 
(400dpi Canon Laser engine) connected to a NeXT as my printer, but this 
has gone into storage because of space constraints. Since them I have 
been working with a Canon S630 Inkjet and that printer produces 
terrible ugly output, jagged fonts etc. The same document prints sharp 
on any laser printer I try it on (color or monochrome).

I have been looking into a laser printer replacement and it seems I can 
go for a HP 1010, a Lexmark 232 or a Samsung or Brother 2030 (all b&w). 
Though some say they have higher resolutions, all seem to be running 
basically a 600x600 dpi setup. Color is a bit expensive still for the 
volume I print at home.

I am looking for advice. What do typesetting-quality-sensitive people 
prefer for a laser printer that produces sharp output, preferably has 
double sided printing, a small footprint and of course
