Two magazine covers from the past.
I give presentations from my notebook computer (a Dell Windows 10 Machine with HDMI connector), so unless otherwise specified you should provide a computer projection system that will handle at least Super VGA output of 1024 x 768. If the room or audience warrants it, you should also provide a PA system and microphone. If I’m giving a straight presentation without exercises, then that should be enough; if there are exercises involved then everyone usually brings notebook computers with the appropriate tools loaded and pre-tested (unless you have a training room equipped with computers).
