Animal....are those flow charts?....

That's one way to categorize them buddy215. But it's more of the technological differences between the first image I posted and these:

Since whiteboards and markers was mentioned earlier. :)

But really Grinler think of the staff meetings we could have, if the admins had the 4K versions these. Football seasonStaff meetings would never be the same. :)

You know, Elise wanted one of these too, so I think none of the admins will object :wink:

Would really improve the admin meetings, right?

Okay I hijacked the topic enough. Lets get back to discussing this product.

While it looks like an awesome device. The market is already flooded with presentation wall vendors. And I think people can build a high end computer and connect a high quality 55 inch display for under $7K. While no doubt it will be a quality product. I just think like may consumer items MS has brought to the marketplace in the past, they are years late to the game here.

Yes exactly that's what I did for our 3 x conference room ... it is not touch screen but it does the job very well for meeting / presentation / conference call / etc ... Honestly 20k for a setup like that there will be no place for it for small or medium enterprises regarding the cost ...
