So I am on a quest to buy a projector that is first of all small, and second light. It will be an accompaniment to the portable desktop PC I am building.

So requirements / desires are:

Resolution:
1080p @ 60hz
or
720p @ 120hz

Weight:
less than 5 pounds

size:
as small as possible, if its small enough I would like to put it in a laptop bag

Lamp type:
Not a bulb, because of the amount of vibration/handling that will happen.


I know these are kind of odd requirements, but I travel for work so much that I miss having a powerful computer/movie player for blurays and gaming.


Sooooo, anyone know of stuff that somewhat meets these requirements? I've been looking, but nothing somewhat small meets the resolution requirements and the lamp type.....

I am concerned that a bulb would break with the amount of vibration a plane/carrying around would do to it.


edit

I am also one of the types that like to buy the best I can afford. So if there are a lot that meets these requirements, whats the best that you would recommend?

Thank you Amber Ale, I did not come across that in my scouring.

Are there any other options? While I like the K750 it is a little on the heavy side and might put me over my weight limit.

The PA75U does look promising....
is there a higher model that I am missing?

Anything similar?
