    Colour Laser MFP?

    I've been asked to get quotes for a Laser based colour MFP. Would need to be able to cope with runs over 1000 pages from time to time, and be able to scan in colour either to a USB or, ideally, to a network folder...

    What do you guys use and/or recommend?

    What budget are you looking at? This will determine the machine more than requirements, as all MFP's have the functions you want really...

    Forgot to mention, I would need duplex printing as well....

    Budget.. well, not sure yet, but it's not tiny... I guess anything over £1500 is too much, and around the £500-£1000 mark is a good point to start.
