I don't think it takes a lot of memory. I put 4 or 5 powerpoint
presentations on the same CD with room to spare. Some of the
presentations had 50 - 60 images.

I shoot with my Sony Mavica (IBM formatted disc) and it loads onto
either PC or Mac.

But to create or play a powerpoint you must have Office (Microsoft)
on the computer (PC). If you get Office 2001 (for the mac) then you
can create and show powerpoints on your mac. Once the show is created
on either platform, you can show it on the other provided that computer
has Office on it.

Some features do not work between platforms, but most do.

        to define the term "suitable" because our constitution requires
          the state provide a "suitable" education for all students
                      Only Kansas is flat, not the entire planet.
