    I need a RELIABLE longer-range remote control solution for Mac OS X for use in an auditorium. The presenters will stand about 55-75 feet away from the iMac in the A/V booth.

    I've looked at the AirClick

    the Kensington 33062

    and the Keyspan
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000513KE/103-8772048-0475028?v=glance&n=172282

    These 3 have specified ranges of 60 feet and below, which is not something I'd like to risk. Just wondering if anyone knows a solution with a bigger range or maybe some ideas as to boost an RF signal in general or something along those lines, thanks so much.

    Quite ironically, after posting this I saw the Google ad underneath this post for the Wireless Computing RF-100, which supposedly will work up to 100'. I've never heard of this company, however. Does anyone have any experience with them?

    Thanks for the tip, I'll consider that sort of combination.

    Just got off the phone with Jimmy from Wireless Computing who says they're sold out of the RF-100 until 04-18-2006 so I guess SOMEONE likes it. :D
