    I plan on getting the new iWork '09 and will be doing a Keynote presentation in a month or two. I have been looking for those remotes to advance and go back slides...I have been able to find no Mac ones that are inexpensive. :| Anyone know of one that's cheap...under $40?

    Thanks

    Do you already have an iPhone or iPod touch? They act as great remotes for iWork '09. The Keynote Remote app is only $0.99.

    The standard Apple Remote works very well, too. It's $19.

    Thanks for the Apple Remote idea...but I'd like something with a built-in laser pointer too :) . I know I can just use a separate laser pointer but simplicity is good :D

    I use the Logitech Presenter. I do many presentations and IMO this is one of the best clickers. The website does not show Mac support, but it does plugs and plays with Mac Al and Powerpoint. I just tried it again to be sure. Unfortunately I do not know if it works for Keynote.

    Use the Apple Remote and Sofa Control. The Apple Remote does up to 30 feet.
