For those of us travel with our laptops for work, anything that can reduce the number of accessories you have to carry is a good thing. The PCPAL 3-in-1 Laptop Mouse aims to integrate a mouse, laser pointer and presentation remote control in a single slim device.
The PCPAL is even slim enough to be stored in your laptop’s PC card slot. The remote can be used to control PowerPoint presentations, and functions over RF, so doesn’t require line-of-sight. Priced at about $40, it’s worth a look if you do lots of on-the-road presenting.
