I love laser pointer but it is difficult to find good ones that have remote control feature for presentations. Some are either too ugly and/or need to have a big receiver. Some are nice but the price is just too high. Now, Logitech has one that I guess it at an affordable price with the features that I need. Check out the Logitech R500 Laser Presentation Remote.
Comparing it with the R400, I think the latest R500 has a cleaner design. And one of the biggest features that I love is that it has both the receiver and Bluetooth option. Plus, the range (with the receiver) has improved to 20m. I have also checked. It is using a 1x AA size battery.
Check out the details.
