I think very few scanners remove the staples from a magazine. I don't do it for three reasons:
  1. Except for the centrefold, removing the staples will split pics that were spread over two pages
  2. It's a real hassle to keep the pages in order when they're loose
  3. Like sandhunter said, you can't sell a mag after removing the staples. Putting them back on is a chore!

I use a simple Epson all-in-one scanner. It will scan anything up to A4, the only problem I have is with 3- or 4-page foldouts. Because the lid is fixed to the scanner I have to fold those foldouts backwards.
