But since you've mentioned only requiring monochrome output, a laser printer might be a better option. The Samsung SCX-4500 is larger in size, but the design is one of the nicest in the laser printer category and relatively small for a laser model. And the SCX-4500 is currently heavily discounted, available for under $150, even with the built-in scanner (an extra unneeded feature for you, but think of it as a bonus).
Our other recommendation is to just hide away your printer altogether with a wi-fi compatible small space mobile printer, like the HP OfficeJet H470. In our home office, we simply hooked up our boxier (but very affordable) Canon inkjet to our Apple Airport base station and hid both components in another room, away from view.
Any other recommendations out there for Nadia in the printer category?
