    Laptop display onto TV wirelessly

    The Head would like a 32" TV/Monitor that will connect to his laptop wirelessly in his office so he can show presentations etc. Has anyone had any experience of setting this up and if so what hardware would be required. Can anyone recommend something that will do this such as a dongle/receiver etc.

    Thanks

    AirTame might be worth considering, although it's not available until May/June.

    Just done something very similar

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B009E6R89C

    It just works... Plug it into the laptop and it auto negotiates., providing you have HDMI of course

    Or if the laptop has intel WiDi chipset you could get a hdmi miracast dongle for the TV ( Netgear's Push2TV)
