Logitech PPoint Presenters

Logitech this morning swung out two presenter remotes designed specifically to streamline PowerPoint slideshows. The Professional Presenter R800 tops the entries and not only lets users advance or backtrack through slides but includes a display that counts down to the intended finish of a presentation and provides vibrating alerts in the last five minutes. It also has a 100-foot range that helps for presenting in lecture halls and uses a green laser that should work on less friendly surfaces.

More basic presentations are served by the Wireless Presenter R400, which omits the display and uses a more common red laser to highlight items on a screen.

Either remote uses an RF-based USB adapter to connect to a computer and currently requires Windows XP, Vista or 7, although none of them require drivers to work. The R400 and R800 ship in September for $50 and $100 respectively.
