Purchase: scanner and laser printer. Anyone want my old scanner?

After three years without my own printer (Lexmark sucks), I found a laser printer on Overstock.com that's reasonably cheap and meets my needs, a Samsung ML-1250. I also picked up a scanner with a built-in transparency attachment (a Microtek ScanMaker 5900) so I won't be tethered to my parents' computer when I get down to scanning slides as part of my ongoing indexing of family photos for them.

Thanks to this, I will shortly have a spare scanner (an AcerScan Prisa 310P). If anyone wants it, it's a sturdy flatbed scanner with a parallel connector. I have the original drivers here and the original box is at my parents' -- the documentation may be too, but it's all available to download and I could throw it on CD-R if needed. It's in good condition for a five-year old scanner -- a cracked removable lid hinge has been reinforced with superglue -- and is free to a good home. I would ask that the recipient pay shipping, but I can cover it if cost is an issue.
