Dell unveils new lightweight projector

Dell's new 2300MP projector serves up bright images in a package that won't weigh down the business traveler, the company said Tuesday.

At 4.7 pounds (2.1 kilograms), the 2300MP is designed to appeal to mobile sales professionals or marketing executives on road shows or marathon sales trips. The projector is based on DLP (digital light processing) technology, often used in rear-projection televisions.

The 2300MP projects images at XGA (1,024 pixels by 768 pixels) resolution and is rated at 2,300 lumens. Lumens are a measure of brightness specified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

While projectors are not a huge part of the IT market, the devices are very important to users that make a living giving PowerPoint sales presentations or graphical designers showing off their latest work. Consumers can also use the devices to create home theaters.

Larger PC customers often buy projectors along with notebooks or other mobile computing devices, which leads companies such as Dell and Hewlett-Packard to sell projectors as part of their product lineup.

Dell will sell the 2300MP for US$1,499 in North and South America at first. It will be rolled out to other regions over the rest of the year, but pricing information was not available for customers in those regions.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
