Help me pick out a workhorse laser printer

I am having an embarrassingly difficult time replacing an HP 4600 Laserjet printer. What is your methodology for selecting a high-volume laser printer?

I choose laserjets because of their reputation, but when I went to the HP website it was a confusing mess. I say this as someone who has been using online spaces since the days of the Vic-20. The one printer I liked had toner cartridges that cost $200+ apiece, which seems fishy. Nothing on Amazon rises above consumer grade.
What's your methodology for determining the quality of enterprise computing equipment?
Basically, looking at the printer's history page, I need something that can handle 4,600 pages a month, is rock solid, networks, will print color, and doesn't have obscene toner prices.
I know I am making obvious mistakes here, but haven't quite nailed down what they are, plus it's the beginning of the semester and I'm swamped and can't think straight.
