Not long ago there was a Brother laser for just under $100 that would
do wireless connection and duplex printing, and Brother is supposed to
be Linux compatible.  Assuming that model is still around, check for
compatibility.  I recommended it to a young college student, who thanked
me. (She was probably using Windows, however.)  Price I mention was
street price from the usual sources.  I have an HP workhorse from about
10 years ago, and I really would miss duplex, so that's what's so nice about
the Brother, at that price.
