No, I don't sail with a laser printer hooked up and running in storms. I did not know that that was the original poster's specified application.
I can say however that many laser printer manufacturers, including HP, have sealed toner bottles that may leak, but not explode. And BTW, contact with toner will not kill you.
I think the guy is looking for a multi function system that will perform well under his stated conditions: seldom used, damp environment, not too big or expensive.
Under these conditions the HP will be fine. I know laser printing systems, this is what I do for a living.
Last, all gear should be secured during sailing and especially during a storm. There are far more dangerous items that can be launched inside a stormy boat, printer toner is the least of my worries.
