Thanks for all of the input. I ended up getting a ScanMaker 4800 made by Microtek. It has a 2400X1200 resolution with 48 bit color depth. The software has a dummy mode that's very easy to use for clearing out red-eye etc. and a technical mode that will let you control far more things than I understand. That was all for $100 on the street.

I still don't see the part that you sit upon.

For those of you who have had your head buried in the sand like me for the last few years, a scanner now can serve the functionality of a photocopier. As long as you have a USB port available, most of them now have a button on the front that you press and the photocopy comes out of your regular printer without any additional user involvement with your computer. Pretty nerdy, but kinda cool and darn useful.
