I saw it but didn't respond because I don't know about Mac compatibility,
but the HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 series uses water resistant inks, duplexes,
networks, 4 in 1.  Have it at our church so I don't know about pages per
cartridge, but it seems to work great.  I am eyeballing it since the color
on my laser goes out of whack about every six months - toner gets on the
mirror and it is an "intricate" cleaning job.

I never saw this come through and also never saw a response, so am sending
again.    Best wishes to all,  Karen

JUST after I choked and bought replacement inks here in Dominica for
megabucks for my Canon MX700, the printer died.  Fixing it more expensive
than buying new (immoral) and would require bringing back to U.S..  We use
the printer for labels for our produce that sometimes get wet at market.
Does anyone have a recommended printer/scanner/copier model: 
that comes with or can use waterproof inks (hopefully, sparingly) and 
that maybe has separate cartridges for all colors (our logo uses up yellow
and magenta way before cyan) and also for black  and
that seems sturdy/reliable with potential for a long life
that has reasonable print speeds
that is Mac compatible?

My previous Epson C-84 met all those qualifications -- except for long life.
Got caught by a CSS Counter Reset message that can't resolve.

Thanks and best wishes to all,
