Looking for a decent flatbed scanner compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) under $100. Will be scanning mostly photos but some documents and drawings as well. Available at Amazon preferably.

Scanner should include any software and drivers necessary to work, or be freely available through manufacturer, to be able to produce jpeg images at the very least (tiff/gif/pdf/png would be nice as well).
Most photos will be 3x5 format, and scanned images will be shared with friends and family, so image quality and resolution should be good, but need not be professional.
At minimum scanner should use USB, although extras like wireless support might be handy, so long as it doesn't compromise image quality.
Do not want a scanner that needs VueScan or other third-party software (Photoshop, Photoshop plugins, Windows, etc) to function.
