Hardware Thread, Presentation Mouse in Technical; ...

I've got a teacher looking for a wireless presentation remote/mouse that can control slideshows and has a built in laser pointer. She got used to the functionality on her last projector remote control which her new one doesn't have.
I was wodnering if anybody has any recommendations the ones I am finding are mainly in America or costing £50+
Thanks for all help as always.

You can buy them from here
I used this one
Logitech Cordless 2.4GHz Presenter 1pk OEM
£29.36 inc VAT - £24.99 ex VAT
You can also get cheaper ones on here too

We have a Thomson Gyration. No physical laser but if you put the software on teh computer there is a software laser you can use. Prob a bit safer.
Very nice and works miles away (well from one corner to the other of our large hall.)
EDIT: Also can be used as a normal optical mouse which is nice for some who have problems using the air moves.

Computerwebstore : Kensington WIRELESS PRESENTATION POINTER
Really good, work over massive distances, not liine of sight etc
I know you can get them from Proband or Misco or somewhere like that.

We use Targa ones here. Not sure what sort of price they are though but they're pretty good.
I think the brand is Targa, somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

Except they ONLY work with the supplied bluetooth dongle and none of the laptops with embeded bluetooth.

Thanks for all the replies!
The Logitech looks like just the piece of kit we need and a pretty decent price too, so that's where my 'thanks' button will go to
