Just bought this printer after looking at the list of printers Apple has on its web page, touting its to be useful with airplay! While you maybe able to use airplay with 10.6 I think of its usefulness to be 10.7 and Lion compatible, this printer is not. To apple's credit it does print that its only listed to work with 10.6 OS.
Lion is not brand new, just released or bleeding edge software but in many cases it does seem that the players and hardware has not caught up to Lion.
I believe that apple should not have a printer on its front page of recommendation of printers for one that does not work with its grand dame OS Lion. HP needs to get update or Apple should rethink this printer in its store.
My biggest complaint about this device is the number of copies per toner cartridge. It is way too costly to operate. I used to own a much cheaper Brother printer that produced way more copies/pages per toner cartridge. I just bought another Brother printer and will be gifting this one to charity (although, I feel guilty passing along this toner hog to anyone!).
