Nothing measures one's commitment to the maxim "time is money" like paying for a service that's free but potentially time-consuming.

Lugging around a heavy pro-jector for a mobile presentation is nobody's idea of fun. Is a lightweight projector a better option?

And it's important to remember that you're paying for weight (or lack of it); these projectors' features can't match those of heavier models.

"No," say I in my all-knowing way, "I'd prefer to stick with something secure like freelance writing!"
