My model has been discontinued. Here's a very similar one on Amazon for $150:

Edit to add: no "magic buttons" on this one. Maybe not a big deal for most. But with my non-tech-savvy wife, I really like this feature as she never calls me for "IT help" over the phone.

I've heard nothing but great things about Brother laser printers (not counting people on this forum)

BTW, my Bro laser was an Amazon refurb and I got the 3rd party toner. Both have worked swimmingly.

Might be cool to have a folder on the front page of phone, and there was a way to put the boarding passes there easily (one-touch, I mean).
Or, back pocket of pants.
Isn't this the reason to use Apple Wallet, if you have an iPhone?

yes.

boarding passes go into Apple Wallet. For me, starting 4 hours before departure, there is a boarding pass notification on the lock screen. swipe left on it and the boarding pass is instantly open. boom.
