You will change cartridges less often but they are expensive.
P.S. I had no idea tweakers were that into ink cartridges!

When I needed to replace our last inkjet with a laser, purchased HP
m475dn printer. Full multifunction with other options. Higher priced
but runs beautifully. Purchased from HP direct as it was at a lower
cost than I could get quoted at any local shop, it was free shipping at
the time. Had it in a week.
We use these printers at work as well which is one of the reasons I
Purchase supplies direct from HP when on sale Much lower price than
local stores, in some cases, almost 50% lower. We usually replace all
color cartridges in a year due to usage and black more often. HP has a
three pack of color cartridges for the price of two when on sale. Last
time was less than the cost of two at the local store. NO expiry date
on the cartridges. They also sell dual packs of black at a greatly lower
cost. Usually purchase a replacement pair when we put the last one in.
Cost of laser cartridges are much lower than ink used to cost.
With Fedora, printer works out of the box using DHCP or configured
manually. Scanning requires a HP driver that downloads and installs
Full duplex which is needed for all the document printing my wife does.
Also as I found out, does full duplex scanning as well with sheet feeder.
My daughter has a Samsung (cannot remember the model) which worked out
of the box. Popped up with test print when plugging in to usb as a test
without installing any software. She configured it for network
printing. I have never seen it. Finally had to replace the original
cartridge after a year of university printing.
