I'm helping a small non-profit replace a dead all-in-one color laser device. They regularly print color brochures, plus black and white copies of invoices, emails, etc. I'm having a really hard time finding a high-quality all-in-one unit that has the feature set required below, plus reliability and operating costs that don't break the bank.

Thank you in advance!
