Time to dust off the credit card and get a new all-in-one printer for school projects, photo printing etc.  So I've narrowed my choice down to the 2 printers in the subject and wondered if anyone would like to share their views on either printer.

Hey there, I suggest you read a few reviews to find out all the little details about each printer. I'll try to sum up what I think will be the key differences, the canon will have vastly superior photo prints, it is probably the benchmark in inkjets of that price range. The HP will be better if you don't print every day due to the jets being on the cartridge and therefore won't dry out, scanning quality is meant to be very good too.
I'm sure theres lots more but I can't think of it at the moment.

Desktop: i7 920, GTX 275, asus P6T, antec 1200, 6gb ram, 1tb spinpoint f1, 1tb spinpoint f3, Logitech Z2300, Zero DAC, Shure SRH440
Laptop: Toshiba satellite, T5300, Go 7300
Home Theatre: 32" loewe CRT, Harmon kardon amp, dvd player, image 418 speakers, rega planar 25 turntable :)

Thanks very much for the replies; the reviews have them pretty evenly matched; some prefer the Canon and some the HP; the Canon seems to be the best bet for photos however so that's the one I'm ordering.
