Canon Pixma MX 416?

I took this photo at the Canon concept store in V-Mall.
Email from Bimbim:
'RE:  Printer
Here's a list of questions I have
fax - are you going to have a dedicated line or are you going to share it with the rest of the house.
If you are going to share it with the rest of the house does PLDT have what they call an alternative ring?  This means that using the same phone line they will assign you a different phone number that you can give as a fax number.  If people use that then you will know it's a fax coming in.  If you do have this service then make sure that your printer can receive calls on an alternative ring - in my canon it is known as DPRD setting.
Scan - are you going to scan or fax out multiple pages at a time?  If you are make sure you get one with a document feeder.
Wireless Printing - since you work with your netbook all the time.  It would be nice to work with a wireless printer.  This way, even if you are in another part of your house you will be able to print without having to connect your printer to your computer.  Make sure the signal can go through the walls of your house.  Even if it can't, it would be nice to have it in case you upgrade your netbook, you can keep both netbooks and use the printer on both.
Canon PIXMA MX410 can do all the above - for additional service look below - regular price
Photos - do you want to be able to just plug in your memory card and print directly from the card to the printer?  Canon PIXMA MX420 - has the option for memory card - reasonably priced
do you need it to print from your phone too? Canon PIXMA MX882 - has all of the above incl print from phone - for me I think this is a little too high priced.'
The closest thing to the MX410 that I could find was the MX 416:

Continuation of Bimbim's email to me:
Other questions
how fast do it have to be
can you program different types of  computers - i.e. pc and mac to print at the same time (you never know)
can it be converted to the ink thing (you know what I mean)
what quality of printing do you want - average or high end?
I am using Canon because I am sure of what it can do AND I know you have a good selection there.
Read your blog:  Do not do a cost per scan vs xerox bec you can convert your scanner so the ink is so much cheaper.
Tell your friend - even if he does not know how to use a computer to copy from a scanner requires you pressing two buttons only.  One to make sure it's on copy second to choose colored or black and white copy.
I have had my 4 in 1 for over 2 years and it's quite reliable.  My other one broke down after 4 years.  After 4 years the technology has changed so much that it;s not a problem if it dies after that many years.  With the price of new 4 in 1s it may be cheaper to upgrade.
FAVOR:  Can you check something for me can they change a Canon MP360 printer head (bec it does not work) and convert it to a continuous ink - thanks a lot - thinking of sending my faulty one home to have this done - I'm hoping that they can do this.  Also a Canon MX320 to continuous ink - sorry to ask you to do this but would like to confirm this before bringing my printers home.'
If you have any techie questions, post them in the comments section of this post, and I can forward them to Bimbim.   The blog she was referring to is Looking for a 4-in-1.
