    Hi there,

    Am a mature student in the UK, and am looking for a multifunction printer at home to work with my Mac. I've found a few printers that have all of the functions that I'm looking for, but I'm wondering if there's anything a bit smaller that is similar. Perhaps the best choice for me at present is the Brother DCP-9045cdn, as it has the following features:

    1. Colour laser printer, which is reasonably fast
    2. Seemingly reasonable running costs
    3. Automatic duplexing
    4. Network ready (wifi would be even better, but ethernet networking is a must)
    5. Automatic document feeder and flatbed scanner + copier function
    6. Around £500

    But the problem is that this thing is 38kg and huge! Am wondering if there's an alternative that does all of the above, but is smaller, as I live in a small flat and may have to carry it between places from time to time.

    Any ideas??

    My other thought is to get a separate scanner and printer, but if you do that, is there a way to connect them up as a photocopier without using your computer?

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Thanks a lot,
    Sean.
