The 980N is the only printer in Epson's current consumer lineup that has a built-in Ethernet capability. However, any of the others can be used on a network when connected to a print server or shared off of any computer in the network. A further factor you might want to consider is duty cycle. As far as I know, the 980 and 980N are the only printers in this group that publish a duty cycle (5000 pages per month). If your anticipated work load is significantly lower than that, it is possible that either the 890 or 1280 would work - your choice would be determined by print size needs. While the 980 is not classified as a photo printer (quad inks as opposed to hex), the output is quite good. Only your needs and your eyes can determine that. When asking whether you can get photo quality from a four-color setup, look at the 3000 - few would quibble with accepting it as photo quality. And remember, that is with 1440 dpi max and a larger drop size as compared to the 980's 2880 dpi and the smallest drop size of 3 picoliter. So the possibility of its satisfying your needs is pretty good.
