HP printers work rather faultlessly with Linux.  However, recently
Samsung has started to advertise its support for Linux, so you can see
what it has to offer.  You do not seem to have intensive use, but may
need to print some photos or banners some day, so keep that in
consideration.  By the way, it seems you want an inkjet.  Right?

As you will not be using the printer much to have maintenance needs in
the short run, check if there is an option available for extended
maintenance/warranty.  Also, form factor might be an important
consideration, for which there are some quite good options on HP.
