Another option is to use devices that can be used independently of a computer because they have USB ports, memory card slots, and PDF support. Otherwise, I also consider Postscript and network connectivity to be must-have features. PCL is acceptable, but less desirable than Postscript because there are more tools to work with Postscript files. Using devices that require proprietary software, drivers, protocols, or unusual configuration steps is inviting disaster.
