Art question

You guys like these, right?

So, for years now I've been scanning with the same trusty old hundred-dollar all-in-one printer that I grabbed off the shelf at Sam's Club. It's an HP 4215ix. I draw stix with a black Col-Erase pencil, scan, and then fiddle with the levels. The problem started when I got a new computer running OS 10.6.7. Turns out this operating system does not play nice with the HP 4215ix software. I downloaded a thing called VueScan that can make any operating system work with any scanner, but my drawings are no longer quite as vivid as they were when I was using the native software for the device. And evidently HP has no drivers that will fix this problem.

So I think I need a new scanner. Nothing fancy, just one that will make stix look good. I have a flatbed scanner but it faithfully reproduces every wrinkle in the paper so I think a sheet feed scanner will be better. But maybe I'm wrong about that? What do you think?
