    Like Rich we went for a Targus Wirless Presenter, find the Laser a bit faint but everything else functions well and over distance, from back of School Hall with Laptop at front. Broke the Battery clip the first time I put batteries in "clumsy" but it was a weak design, though managed to repair it with a small piece of plastic and Araldite.

    I've got an earlier, slightly less feature-packed version of the Targus one and I find it pretty good. Decent radio range, pretty responsive.

    I think you'll like it, Sysman!

    also have the targus ones.

    Train your users to turn them off when they're finished though, or use rechargeables.

    Re: Wireless Laser Pointers / Presenters

    How do these perform in conjunction with wireless laptops? (Also 2.4GHz)
    Does it interfere in anyway?
    Slowness on laptops?

    @Sysman: where is this 'good price' from?

    Well the Targus one works like a dream, too well infact. It will control the laptop even when used 2 classrooms away.

    I am going to take a look at the Trust one now as that has channels that can be manually.

    But if you only need one then the Targus is great value.
