HP’s Notebook Projection Companion is Compact, Bright

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  January 6, 2010

If you’re looking for an easy way to project something off your laptop, then look no further. HP’s Notebook Projection Companion should satisfy your needs, in a really compact package.

The new LED-powered HP Notebook Projection Companion will project up to 60-inches up to 8.5 feet away. Measuring in at just just 4 x 3 inches and weighing less than 1 pound, this little device sits squarely between regular full-sized projectors and those pico-projectors that we’ve been hearing about, but that deliver underwhelming images.

It pumps out 100 lumens and has a contrast ratio of 800:1. It’s resolution is 858 × 600. It actually doesn’t look too bad in its brushed aluminum case. It works well and is way brighter than pico-projectors. I’d rather have a larger screen if I had a presentation to give, but if you don’t have the choice, this gizmo should do the job. The projector will be available on January 15 and will sell for $499 (USD).
