There's loads of them, search for:-
all-in-one colour laser printer
I don't have much of a recommendation, HP are OK (or used to be) but
for Windows they tend to want you to download so much driver software
it becomes a bit of a pain. Pretty well supported on Linux though.
Had same problem with their photosmart drivers.
I found that if you let the installation go as far as unpacking,
then search around in temp directories, you can find a standard
windows printer driver diorectory which it's unpacked. Fire up
the Windows Add Printer, say you have a disk, and point it at
the unpacked driver directory. When it's installed, return to the
HP installer window and abandon it.
You can probably do same for the scanner, but I didn't have time
to find where it had unpacked that (also not being so familiar
with what I was looking for in the case of a scanner).
The nagging adware is a right royal pain in the arse.
For the printer I have, the windows driver works fine, but most
of the rest of the software HP wants to install is complete crap.

Yes - Samsung CLX series . I have one (CLX-4195FW). Slow printing but
the quality is good - scan to email works well.
Virtually the same as:

- heavy bastard mind - you'll need a string table!
Thanks, I'll look at that.
I actually have a Samsung CLP-325, that seems to have died.
It's rather curious, as it sometimes seem to print OK,
but usually behaves strangely, either printing nothing
or printing half the page down the bottom of the sheet.
It also makes a slightly whining note, which is a bit worrying
There are but unless you are really tight for space you can do better
with a dedicated scanner and a cheaper to run colour laser printer.
The all-in-ones all seem to have premium priced ink/toner so do the
monthly usage sums for consumables very carefully or get burned.
Following a bargain I couldn't resist in Staples and the friend I asked
about colour lasers offering me his, I am now the proud owner of a Dell
C1765nf and an HP MFP275. I've had them just a few weeks, but have done
a fair bit of printing and a little scanning and copying.
The Dell was free, the HP £49.
The HP has this weird "3D" scanner, which is basically a pair of cameras
on arms above the bed. I wouldn't recommend it, but it has produced some
really nice scans of objects as well as normal paper. Could be brilliant
for scanning little lumpy things for sale on ebay.
The Dell is standard and has a sheet feeder.
The only thing that has surprised me compared to my old but superb Xerox
P12 printer is how small the input paper tray is on both.
Print quality is excellent on both, and light years ahead of the HP
C5280 inkjet they replaced.
I have no idea yet of the running costs, so I may yet have to fail to
retire the Xerox, which is amazingly cheap to run for b&w printing..
That's something that's been puzzling me whilst looking for a new
printer/copier. My old bog standard HP laser printer takes a full ream, but
most current copiers, even quite heavy duty ones, only take 250 or 300
sheets unless you pay an extra ?100 for an add-on paper tray.
