7 Gadgets to Save Your Next Presentation
Microsoft Surface 2 Pro, $899
Slowdowns with an older laptop during slide transitions or when you play HD videos can be unbearable. The Microsoft Surface Pro 2 has a fast Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a port on the side for connecting a projector (you'll need a Mini DisplayPort cable, which costs about $40). To display your slides, you swipe on the right, select Devices, and hit Project--easier than ever. Best of all? You can expect all day battery life.
