Nicole & Elizabeth - I have used a Netbook to run Power Point presentations.
I found it essential to get the screen to my EYE LEVEL -- perhaps an
unnecessary accommodation if you do not need to turn your back to the
audience to see the main screen. Probably others -- with "younger" vision --
would not be as affected.

Not as the master computer, hooked up to a projector, no. I have used it to
build the PowerPoint presentation but, unfortunately I haven't had an
opportunity to try it out as the main computer in a presentation. I'm not
sure how that would work out actually. It would be interesting to hear if
others have had experience using it that way. For now, I just think of it as
a convenient, portable research computer but if someone else has had good
experiences using it as a presentation computer as well that would
definitely add to its value.
