can i install the hp color laserjet 2840 driver on a mac os x?

I have a HP Color Laserjet 2840 and an iMac runing Mac OS X ver. 10.7.4.

 

Can I install and use the full suite of HP software to fully operate the printer and scanner features?  Currently I can only print with very limited functionality that the printer offers.

 

Please help!

Hi,

I affraid your printer is not fully supported by Lion Mac OS X 10.7.

 

As you may find listed below, only print functionality provided for the OS and scanning is no longer supported:

Yeah, this is a problem. We are running a new MacBook Pro, but have 3 older MacBooks on the network, and now have to buy a new printer because HP doesn't want to write the software to run the product? You seem to make new drivers for every Windows version that comes out every 2 years, but not for Mac? Is HP going to make a driver, or should we just stop using HP altogether?
