Does any one have a printer recommendation for me? I would prefer an HP Photosmart since I also print a lot of photos. Thanks

HP C440 did not really reached my expectation as an HP printer but it is really not that bad. It works perfectly well though you cannot load too much paper in it because it will surely get jammed. I do not have problems with its printer drives and works well with a wireless router. It also does not have costly ink as you can see on this

To get wireless capability, you need to check the particular printer model. Normally this feature will be clearly advertised. Then you need to set it up.

You might look at Canon printers. We bought an MX882 from Costco a short time back. It prints photos beautifully*, is quite fast for black and white type, seems to have no problems with different paper, goes to sleep and then wakes when a Mac wakes. You can buy individual cartridges from Amazon. You don't have to replace whole sets.

*As with any color printer, it's not necessarily easy to get prints to exactly match what you see on screen. In experimenting with this printer, we tried genuine Canon paper, for which there's a specific printer profile. We didn't see all that much difference from cheaper Costco paper.
