Have you considered LED monitors?  Monitors (>= 23") are quite affordable these 
days and good enough for a class of about 25-30 students. For large gatherings 
(30+), you could spread multiple monitors around the room.

The monitors can be used with a long VGA cable and no separate projection 
screen is needed. They are cheaper, better (picture quality), need less power 
and their brighter displays means the room need not be darkened.
