What all do I need to buy in order to do multimedia presentations in community settings, and how much do you think it will cost? We're talking ground up here: I currently use an easel and newsprint. Needs to be portable.

Situation: I do educational workshops out in community venues ranging from school classrooms to church multipurpose rooms for a small nonprofit organization. I'd like to be able to incorporate websites, streaming video, DVD, powerpoint, etc on the go.
My boss has asked me to put together a budget for her. Obviously I need a laptop. It's probably going to have to be a PC. I also need a projector. Researching projectors has been madness, because there are so many different kinds, and my eyes glaze over. What kind of projector do I need? Also, in addition to a laptop and projector what should I consider? Speakers? Cables? Cases? Screen? I'll be lugging everything around, so lightweight is key.
In summary: Could y'all please tell me what exact equipment (i.e. brands, models) and accessories you think I need in order to be able to show DVDs/Powerpoints out in the field, and help me figure out approximately how much they would cost. Musts: lightweight and not bulky, PC not Mac.
