Unless you plan on using it for intensive graphic work, go with a cheapie. As long as its scans 100 dpi you should be fine. Also, don't go with an off brand that you have never heard of though. Its not worth spending $100+ just to scan cards and some "paper works."

I picked up a HP all in one for $40 at Target on sale. Might be able to find one if you look around. I probably won't use the printer much, but it definately works well enough for me.
