Hmm.. a decent projector with a built-in dock for your iPad, iPod or even your iPhone. These new projectors come in two flavors, the MG-50 offers basically standard resolution at 540P while the MG-850HD can give you 720P resolution. Which would you choose? There’s basically a $100 difference between them, the MG-50 for $699 and the MG-850HD for $799. Both of these projectors offer built-in 10 watt speakers along with HDMI, USB and VGA inputs. You can also use them for your computers and gaming consoles as well.
