I would agree with you Brian, that a driver is unnecessary with a modern
print-only network printer, but I suppose a driver would be appropriate
if you prefer to use a USB cable or if the "printer" is a
printer+scanner combo and you want to be able to scan? :-)

(In fact the OP said he wants a simpler printer than his MP280 (a combo)
but I am at a loss to interpret this as a true print-only printer or a
more user-friendly and less cumbersome printer+scanner combo)
