Re: [Computerbank] Supported Printers for Computerbank Victoria Systems

Yes, the full document does refer people to linuxprinting.org - however to 
make our support / providing information job easier - we recommend only 4 
current model printers. 

Do you want to be doing linuxorg printer db requests everytime a recip asks 
if such and such a printer is supported? I'm really not up for it...neither 
are other volunteers - so we pick 4 out of the perfectly supported list - 
ranging from cheap to moderately expensive - and recommend those.  

Needless to say if a recip buys a perfectly supported printer (because they 
went and had a look) that wasn't on our recommended list - it would get 
configured. The list is primarily for people who ask "what is a good printer 
to get for this system?"
