Hey guys,

I am in the market for a presentation remote. It needs to have the following attributes:

1) be cheap
2) work with Keynote AND PowerPoint (though Keynote is more important)
3) Not cost an arm and a leg
4) Not be too expensive.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

If your cell phone has bluetooth connectivity and you have a bluetooth USB dongle or built-in bluetooth, then Salling Clicker is $20 and works brilliantly. Otherwise, check out CompuSmart or FutureShop as they sell remote USB devices for about $80 that should work with Powerpoint and Keynote (but check).

is price important?

What would give you that idea?

I don't have a bluetooth phone, but this could eventually be another good excuse to look for one.

I was already going to do that, but I was wondering in the mean time if anyone had any positive/negative experience to share?

As it is, I will probably pick up the no name one from work this weekend.
