Printing to USB Printer over Airport/Windows PC and Advanced Features

As I said in this thread, I'm thinking of making the switch back to Mac again, this time in the form of an iBook. I had purchased the Airport base station with my previous Mac in the hopes of printing to my Canon S520 wirelessly. It did indeed work, however, I could not use any advanced features like borderless printing/or even check the ink levels without connecting the printer directly to the Mac.

Are there any printers out there in which you can use all the features over Airport?

If I were to hookup the printer to a windows pc, and share it over the network, will there be advanced options?

I really, really want to make the switch back, please help me out!

Thanks so much!

I think that's just the limitation of sharing printers. I don't think you can check the ink level on a remote matchine even in a network consisting of only PCs.
