    Does anyone have any experience with laptop projectors? I'm thinking of renting/buying one for my super bowl party. Is the quality good enough to watch the game?

    I don't know any details, but my office has one for meetings and such. I'm fairly sure it's a good one cuz my boss likes spending money so my guess is it's a good one, but the picture isn't great. Definately not good enough for streaming football.

  4. Why would you want to project your lap?

    If you get a good one, and more importantly, have a good room for it. Windows, even with blinds and curtains will still likely cause it to be washy looking.

    My lap projects just fine on it's own
     
  7. Ontop of the comments regarding the windows, what are you projecting onto? White walls will work, but won't be as bright and clear as a projector screen.

    How well it all works depends on your laptop. Most modern laptops will work most video fine, heck, most will work happily enough with HD video. A friend of mine used to have an HD projector setup and it was pretty sweet.
