I like laser printers, the toner lasts forever. They take a lot of power to start up though. We have to run ours off the generator
, our crappy Xantrex Prosign 2000 chokes on the startup voltage, which should be within it's limits, so we run it off the Honda
2000 when we need to print away from the marina.
For a scanner we use our iphones to photo
the docs and then use an app to make pdfs or if necessary do it on the notebook, which means the printer can be small and cheap. It would be a PITA to scan a 80 page doc but we haven't had that problem yet.
