    Yes, as long as it is a USB printer. Mac OS X uses the Common Unix Print System (CUPS), which is also used by Linux. If you don't have a Mac yet, try the printer in Linux first (if you have Linux). If it works in Linux, it will work on Mac. A parallel port printer can be connected to USB with an adapter, but it will be slightly more difficult to set up.
