Printer on a bus

Anyone got any idea where I might buy a replacement for my adored Canon BJC-85 printer? The beauty of it is its portability, can be carried home on a bus when bought and, thereafter, fits into cabin luggage when flying. Basically I don't need a printer to do anything but churn out A4 pages of text - up to 205 at a time - fairly quickly. But if, as I fear, I can't get an exact replacement and have to find another make, it would be quite cool to have a scanner/ photocopier facility too. (But still has to be got home to SE1 on a bus and off to foreign climes on a plane.)Thanks in advance.

Someone has asked the same question on the Guardian Technology website http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/askjack/2008/jul/17/lookingforalightweightport

But the responses aren't overwhelming there either. There seems to be more response at the request for a Netbook printer http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/askjack/2009/jan/15/portable-priter-netbook

Thanks, Truthmonkey. It seems strange there aren't more of them about. Probably explains why those of us with the Canon BJC-85 Bubblejet form a small, sad group of enthusiasts. At least we can claim that we do actually get out a bit...

Ours died, much to the Professor's distress, and indeed there seems to be nothing similar to replace it. Everyone wants an all singing all dancing printer/fax/scanner/tea maker/thingy now. Except those who want a sweet little portable printer.

Well there's this fellow:

But he's jolly pricy.

I'm hanging on to my old i70.
