Another question to consider is whether the scanner would work with a
newer version of Windows. I have a perfectly good HP Scanjet 5370C for
which there are no drivers available after XP. (I believe there is a
commercial program which work on Windows 7.) It works fine with Ubuntu
though. So do check that if you are considering a Windows upgrade.
