Although it might seem absurd to some, the HP LaserJets are basically the
same as a desktop machine minus the video card capabilities.

The LaserJets usually have a MIPS RM5261 (R5000 compatible) or RM7000A
processor running at up to 500 Mhz depending on the model.  The printers
also contain a PCI bus with space for two or three cards.  I usually drop
in a network card and a hard disk and then load the dimm slots with a couple
128 MB dimms.  Such a self contained printer becomes a respectable Linux
workstation.

I'm running the RedHat 7.1 distribution and can export a Gnome or KDE
desktop from the printer to any other X capable box.
