Summary: Does not have a laser pointer and no where its mentioned that.. I guess they wont say what they dont support.. But please be aware.. If you are looking for simple plug and play and back/forward functions, it does the job.. But for $50 - c'mon you can get a much better one from Best Buy !!
Summary: I have used many remotes and this one is among the very best. I have used it for Keynote presentations containing movies and complex builds on three different MacBooks and it has always connected immediately, maintained the connection, and played everything flawlessly. I assume that those reporting problems have some software on their computers that is conflicting. The compartment for storage of the dongle is very convenient.
Summary: I'm glad to see Apple has this on their site. I do a lot of lecturing, and I've had this for years. It is the best remote. It's better than the Apple remote, because that one is infrared, which means you have to either point it in the direction of the computer (which is needlessly distracting for audiences, if you're walking onstage) or you have to be sure its beam reflects off of a wall (which is distracting for you, if you're concentrating on talking).
Summary: The presenter works fine if you have a simple talk. But I consistently encounter two problems when I use the presenter. First it does not function as a 'plug and play' device on my computer (Macbook Pro, OSX 10.4.11). I always have to reboot after I plug in the presenter. The second problem is that I use short movies in my powerpoint talks, and I have them inserted in the slides so that they play after I click on them.
Summary: Plugged it in and I get the keyboard set-up screen. No ways around it and it won't work. Grrrrr! How did you guys get it to work? I am up to date on my OS and am using a G4 12 inch powerbook. HELP!
Summary: I don't know why I didn't get this little gadget sooner. Being a college professor I give many presentations. I just got the Kensington Wireless Presenter and it truly is plug and play. So much so that this pretty much sums up the instructions that come with it. I took it out of the packaging, put the batteries in the remote, plugged the receiver into a USB port on my laptop (Powerbook G4 Aluminum), connected my laptop to a projector, and away I went.
