    I used my mac in a school presentation, keynote, and I felt like an idiot. I felt like some type of nerd and crap. The keynote thing had two different screens one was normal which i put on the projector, the other was in rehearsal mode which was on the computer screen. Is this stupid?

    What? Would you like to rephrase what you said so that it is coherent?

    Why would you feel like an idiot or nerd for giving a presentation? From your description, you probably are in middle or high school. The assignment was mandatory and you were just doing your work. I don't think you are going to get much validation from the forum members. Also, you shouldn't care what other people think. Apparently you are an Apple fan; have you ever heard their quote, "Think Differently?"

    if you talked like how you posted, i.e., not making any sense, then yeah I see your point.

    Yeah, it is very stupid, because it is so uncool to give Keynote presentations in rehearsal mode on the computer screen. Doing drugs and alcohol, on the other hand, is way, way cooler, like, dude!

    But seriously, I always do my presentations with my screen in rehearsal mode because it allows me to look at the timer and the upcoming slide.

    Oh yeah, the other people in the group didn't know what was really going on because it was a mac, so, that felt kinda weird. I also accidentally clicked the slide during one of the other peoples speeches which is probably where my stupidness came from. Keynote is definitely better than powerpoint though.

    I haven't touched PowerPoint in years because of Keynote. The dual screens it shows on the Mac's screen are extremely helpful. The left shows what is currently being projected and time of day. The right shows what will be displayed after the next click and how long you've been presenting. This is very helpful when trying to meet a time deadline. Keynote is a far superior way of giving presentations. PowerPoint seems stuck in 1993.

    Not my most constructive post but;

    If you feel like an idiot; then you probably are.

    If you don't like giving presentations using keynote that way, don't do it.

    Office has the same mode

    I have Office for Mac 2008 on my MacBook (got it for free from my school), and to my amazment, when I had a second display hooked and went to practice my Masters Defense, it went into the same mode as you all are reffering to with Keynote. It's a great feature. It showed me how long I had been talking, what was coming up next and had a spot for notes. So while I don't particularly care for Microsoft, Office for Mac isn't horrible and has a lot of the same features as iWork.

    I think you should've made a rehearsal before you give the keynote, whether your 16 or 45 it's good to try everything out before having 60 people in front of you, Macs are not nerdy! PCs are, here people rather think that you're a cool guy with a mac than with a random PC and as far as i know, teens are in love with apple products
