Compact wireless printer that works with Mac's

Hello,
Can anyone suggest a compact wireless printer with scanner that works with Macís? We will be traveling and would like to find something that we can store easily. Thank you for any feedback.

Tim

Apple provides a short description of "Air Print" and then lists compatible manufacturers models at this link: AirPrint Basics

I've had very good luck with the Canon Pixma series. We've currently got an MX922, which does a great job on wireless printing and scanning. Will even scan duplex (double sided). But I'm not sure it's going to be "compact" enough for you.

We're an all-Apple household. Two iMacs, one MBA, one MBP, two iPads, two iPhones.

We have used Canon for years as Consumer reports rates them highly and are never problematic.

Good advice! Also look at cnet.com for reviews. If color isn't important, you might look at laser printers. The ink is less likely to dry out over long periods of storage.

We're an all-Apple family and have been very happy with an Epson NX430 All-In-One wireless printer that we have installed in our coach. I like to go by user reviews and rely on Amazon quite often. There a few models of the NX4xx's that you can consider and all have good user feedback.

All HP printers work with Apples Air Print. I have a Photo smart 5520; scan, copy, print. It fit nicely in one of the under seat drawers of the booth in our first coach and fits in the computer station on our current coach with room to spare.

I'm using an Epson XP-610 with my Mac/Ipads/Iphones right now. It has AirPrint and is small in size. I'll be moving it into our new Anthem once it arrives.

I use Canon MP 280. It's not wireless but fits nicely in an overhead compartment. Easily fits in the table area along with the 13" Mac book Pro.

We just bought a Canon PIXMA series printer and it works well. This one was about $100 and there is an hp model that is about the same price and with similar features. When I started the installation, I found that the installation disk was for Windows products only. Had to download the driver set which took an hour or so as it was 3-4 hundred Meg's. That was an unwanted drain on my data plan, but I suppose the hp has a similar setup. Took about three minutes to install the drivers on an old XP based laptop. As with most lower end ink jet printers, the replacement cartridge set will cost nearly the same as the new price of the printer. Maybe when this one goes dry I will donate it to charity, wright it off and buy new.

We use a Canon Pixma MG5320. It works with our Windows computers as well as our ipads and smart phones, all wireless. The picture quality is great as well as all printed material. It is compact and since it is wireless, we can place it anywhere we please in the motorhome. We have been using remanufactured ink cartridges from LD Products with great success. Excellent pricing and free shipping with orders over a certain amount. Highly recommend LD Products.

Many Great suggestions. We use a HP similar to all above. Three in one printer so the copy feature comes in handy also. I keep it in a top cabinet, never pull it out, just extend the extension cord down to a outlet and turn on when we want to use it. When done, unplug and close the cabinet door. Used alot in Branson when printing show tickets and information.
