Mitsubishi arms the FL7000U projector

We're not exactly sure when 1080p projectors became fit for "educational applications," but if that is indeed the case, consider us enrolled. Mitsubishi's FL7000U projector is hailed as the firm's first ultra-bright 1080p HD PJ "for commercial, home theater and education installations." Specs wise, it features 5,000 lumens, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and a trio of 1.1-inch 3LCD inorganic panels -- somehow, all that adds up to a list price of $14,995. 'Course, it can create "side-by-side images for enhanced video conferencing applications," and there is a built-in motion-sensitive anti-theft alarm, but we still can't see throwing this on anything other than a university card.
