I know there has been one of these before, and it usually ranges between a 11.1 to about a 22" screen.

The only reason I am asking is because last week I hooked my laptop up to my 42" TV and it looked quite good, played quite well although I only had 1 or 2 games really.

Today I went 1 ste further and broke my projector out and popped it on my bedroom wall and again it looks very good.

^^ Image is a bit grainy as it was taken on an iPhone but if anyone has a projecter knocking around it is well worth a good laugh like, wouldn't mind taking someone on projector vs projector...

Does using the TV or projector improve your game at all? Easier to aim?

I've used the TV for pinball simulators in the past via the HD cable and it made a big difference.

I doubt it would have much difference as the resolution is the key factor (i.e. increased positions to place the cursor).

Used to use a 17" screen with a naff resolution but now use a 13" laptop screen.

Depends how good the TV or Projector is like Jack said.

I found my Tv was alright but when I connected my laptop to it it never went full screen and I just couldn't get used to it.

The projector was great go, would take some getting used to though as I would be using the laptop but looking up at the wall.

Plug in a mouse if you've got one knocking about, might help.

Mouse would be ideal like Zante said.

I used to play Mario Kart back in the day via a projector, good fun!
