Advice on a printer that handles 11 by 17 sheets

Hello--I am in the market for a used or new (less than $150)desktop-type printer that prints on 11 by 17 paper. I've had success in fixing a couple of HP laserjet 4L printers, and would like to get a printer that, if need be, is fixable by a novice like me. I also want to keep the cost of ink down--the laserjet I have takes a large 74A cartridge that costs initially, but it doesn't dry out and it lasts for years. That would be perfect.

I only need it for printing black and white. I wish my laserjet 4L took ledger-size paper, but it does not.

Do you have any suggestions as to a specific make and model that I should be looking for? Thank you all for your help!
Look for a HP 4V, HP 5000 or HP 5100. These printers are listed in order of introduction and the price will reflect their age. You will not find a new 11 x 17 laser printer for under $150. More like $2000.
