Networked multi-function printers/scanner recommendations

I just never have the luck with network printers. My purchase last year (yes, hello 2009) was a HP LaserJet M1522nf MFP – its a network printer with fax/copying/printing/scanning capabilities.

What annoys me about it is that in Fedora 8, I could only print via the network – there was no way I could scan via the network. The story unfortunately, is similar on Mac OS X – the HP Scan application only works when the USB dongle is connected, which kind of defeats the purpose of a networked multi-function device. In Microsoft Windows land however, one can scan via the network!

Is there a multi-function device, that is a laser printer, and is affordable, that allows one to print and scan via the network on Linux and Mac OS X? I just want to de-clutter in 2009.
