    Hi,

    A few of our schools have just ordered some of the HP Surface tablets running Windows 8.
    I was wondering whether it is possible to be able to display the screen of the tablet on a projector, without having a video cable running between them?
    I was hoping that the teachers could walk round the classroom with the tablet, updating the display on the projector wirelessly.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    I think the best option for wireless display at the moment is the Samsung Ativ 700.
    It has WiDi built in.

    Surface RT and Pro don't have built in WiDi because MS went with the Marvel wireless instead of Intel wireless for some reason.
