Default Laser printer recommendations?

Ooh, it's so long since I bought a laser printer! I don't do a lot of printing, but am not happy with the current necessity to print everything to an inkjet. The old and very dead A3 laser printer was carted off by the local council from the footpath a couple of days ago, and I've dusted and cleaned the space in my office, so...

I'm looking for a desktop A4 laser printer.

Must haves are:
  • PS or good emulation (I print from Adobe InDesign as well as more mundane applications).
  • Network connection so I can print from the much-maligned Windows Vista laptop as well as the Mac.
  • Reliability. I do not want, ever, to need to get a tech in or to have to take it to a repair shop.
Nice to haves are:
  • Duplexing
  • Colour (doesn't have to be brilliant, because my cheap Epson inkjet does really good colour)
Any recommendations or do-not-touch-evers for a very small one person office? I got interested in a Konica/Minolta printer on special at one of the local computer shops a day or so ago, but a casual conversation with one of the computer techs at work turned me right off it.
