I assume that since it's for school news, you won't be doing many full color
printing jobs. If so, check out any of the UMAX lines. I have a UMAX UC630
(600 dpi, 24 bit color), and while I wouldn't recommend it for professional
color use, it's wonderful for greyscale & lineart and occasional color use.
Definitely good enough for color on newsprint stock.
The UC630 is a three-pass scanner, which are cheaper now, but go for
a single-pass if you can. Avoids registration problems, you know.
