Good, affordable home/school use laserjet printer?

Hey everyone! Going to be starting college pretty soon and the printer we had for a while died a couple weeks ago, and I'm looking for a replacement so I will be able to print.

Basically, I am looking for a color laserjet printer that will last 4-5 years, can be hooked up to my network (wireless is a plus), and which my dad can print to (with very little effort) using his iPad, all for under preferably $300. I have been looking into the Brother HL5470DW (even though I'd like color, it's a good price). Is this a wise decision and will it last for how long I need it to? Or if you don't know anything about it, what are you currently using that satisfies all your needs, and what would you recommend?
