The Dell 3115cn works nicely with Linux.  It comes with a PPD in an
RPM, easily extracted for installation with the CUPS managers.

Scanning is another issue.  Haven't gotten sane to work with it, and
it is balking at network authentication for saving the scans to disk
or email.

No idea what the price is, because Dell gave it to us in hopes of
selling us a bunch of them.
