I purchased an HP Designjet 110plus about two years ago for $1300. Its limited to 36" wide paper so you can't print ARCH E size. You can purchase an optional roll feed for $500 if you don't wish to handfeed single sheets through the front paper feed. There is also a second front paper feed that will store letter size to ARCH C sheets that feeds automatically. I couldn't justify the cost of buying an expensive plotter so the 110plus was perfect. I too am a PC user with VW's 12.5 and this printer works flawlessly. The stand, by the way, is a ridiculous $500 so I built one. Great value for small business.

If beige is acceptable, and you don't plan on using xp64 or vista64 a refurbished hp750c is a good machine... www.cesplot.com

If you're running vista32 then you can add winline for compatibility www.winline.com

Then again, I've been accused of being cheap.
