I have used Turboprint (www.turboprint.de) for several years now (including the new Turboprint2 software) to drive all of my printers which have been connected to a Networked Windows printer on my home network.  It is about the only piece of Linux software that I have actually paid money for, as it removes all of the hassle of trying to find Linux drivers for printers - you simply choose the printer first and then see, by looking on their website, if Turboprint supports it - which it probably does!  Apparently thet are very open to requests for new printers to be added to their database of supported printers.

If you can borrow/hire a printer of the type that you are considering then the Turboprint download will allow you to try the printer software fully for a trial period of a fortnight before it expires.  It might save you the problem of having to buy an HP printer simply because HP is the firm that best supports Linux printer driver software.
