You mean the thing that looks a bit like a clipboard? and the presenter looks down at it? That's the tablet pc. Basically a portable laptop minus the keyboard. They have access to the same facilities which are based on the desk computer's, e.g. running order, news wires, internet, plus I imagine its got Word on it, so they can write down there questions or notes. More efficient than tons of paper to ruffle through.
