    I'm thinking of using Continuum with a pocket projector as a laptop substitute. Experimentation with an old Philips PicoPix projector (PPX2480 at 800x600 pixels) worked well but did not provide sufficient resolution to work comfortably with Word etc, and tiles looked terrible - not surprising when compared to the resolution of the 950 screen.

    Do you have any experience of working with a newer projector with resolution at 1280 x 720 or higher? What was your experience? Could you do serious work (given a keyboard) for any length of time?

    Continuum looks brilliant on my Dell 1920 x 1080 monitor, but that's a bit much to lug around!

    Thanks for your thoughts and experience.

    A pico projector is what you need. Rechargeable and HDMI input. At least 1080P and 60Hz. Get one as bright as you can afford. Higher lumens the better.

    Absolutely. Thanks for the link. I'm trying to get a sense of how effective 1280 x 720 or 800 would be, bearing in mind that the Lumia 950 home screen is 1440 across and (so far as I have seen) the projected image takes up about half the frame horizontally which gives just 640 pixels. (Does that make sense?)

    I guess a live demo with a WXGA projector is what's needed.
