The advantage of this being that ya dont need the computer thats connected to the printer, turned on to print. Im gonna get one of these myself when i get the spare cash.

Yeah, and if it's wireless you can move the printer anywhere you want, it doesn't have to be right beside the computer. It can be over in a corner somewhere out of the way or whatever. Just so it has a power outlet and picks up the wireless signal.
