Hello all, I have a MacBook Pro that I run both Parallels and Bootcamp on. I use it alot to do presentations out of the office and I currently have a VERY old portable projector I use with it. I have decided its time to upgrade but I know with my current projector I sometimes have issues with it recognizing the projector if I am booting into Bootcamp or using Parallels (not so much Parallels but Bootcamp especially). Anyway, I just wanted your recommendations for a good, reliable, moderately priced projector. Thanks in advance for your input.

I recently picked up an Optoma H30A. It's an HD-ready (480p) DLP projector and gives an outstanding picture. £875 when I got it, bound to be cheaper now!

Errm....480p isnt high def - 720p or 1080i/p is high def

Its native resolution is 848x480, but it can convert 720 or 1080 signals. Does that make sense?

Looks good at any rate :)
