laser printers are much cheaper on materials, per page, than ink jets. they are, however, black and white only. I've used Brother and/or Samsung all in one machines for years with good results. [when it dies, i buy whichever one is one sale]

Colour or Monochrome, what kind of media do you want to print, how much do you want to print per month/year, what does "all in one" need to include for you (I wouldn't know of anyone still using a fax...)?
Oh, and what is "good" print speed for you (in pages/minute)?

If you don't need color
go for a monochrome laser printer.
Cost per page is MUCH less
speed is VERY good (much better than ink jets)
and quality laser printers have gotten as cheap, or nearly as cheap, as ink jet printers.
If you need color
then you have to choose between
- relatively slow inkjet
- relatively fast color laser
Color lasers are EXPENSIVE to BUY but cheap per page.
Injkets are CHEAP to BUY but expensive per page.
We (for our small business) recently purchased a Canon Fax / Copier / Scanner / Printer.
Laser (does only black-and-white).
Has an automatic paper feeder and double-sided printing / copying / faxing.
Works great. Price about $170 at the time.
When looking at these things:
A - make sure it has all of the features you need. For example: many all-in-ones do NOT Fax. Many all-in-ones do NOT have automatic paper feed or double-sided printing.
B - Brother and HP both have very good names in all-in-one printers (Brother uses Canon print engines). HP is typically more expensive and/or has fewer features than same-price Brother.
