Does this printer do two-sided printing?

No, But you can do that if you print the odd numbered pages first and then turn the pages over and place them back into the paper tray and print the even numbered pages. Tricky, but it works.

Can this scan documents to PDF documents?

answer 1
Yes. When you open the file "HP Deskjet 2050 J510 series Scan" you are given several choices (JPEG photo to file, JPEG photo to e-mail, PDF Doc to file, PDF Doc to e-mail, TIFF Photo to TIF, TIFF Doc to TIF, and Everyday Scan). Don't be afraid to play around with it, it won't break. That's how you learn what it's capable of. ;-D If you keep the default box checked so you can see the scan preview you'll know what you're doing. There's no commitment until you hit the save button; you can ALWAY hit cancel.

Yes. When you scan an item you will be offered a choice of how to save the item - there are several "photo" styles (jpeg, tiff, and ping) as well as scan to PDF.

We use it with a Dell, HP, Acer and Toshiba. If it can work with all of those, I'm pretty confident that it will work with a Compaq (which is made by HP)
