How do I use a laptop to transmit video to a projector and two monitors, all wirelessly?

I want to set up a leptop system where I can display Powerpoint slides on a projector and two LCD monitors.  The hard part to all of this is that I need to do this all wirelessly.  The distance is minimal (all receivers indoors and about 25 feet away max), and the signal will be identical to all units.

I have done some looking around on the internet, but most of the information that I found only confuses me more (amplifiers, splitters, WiFi vs, RF, VGA vs RGB). I understand the basic priciples here, but it seems to me that this shouldn't be as complicated as most people are making it sound.

I have not bought the laptop or any of the equipment yet.  I want good equipment that I won't have problems with down the road, but I am on a limited budget (under $3000 for the whole setup, laptop, two LCD monitors, projector, wireless system).

Does anyone have a simple solution for this little problem?

Thanks in advance,
Scott Thompson

    The Avocent Emerge MPX1000 is the professional solution, but you won't be able to go that route with your budget.

    The InFocus LiteShow II will let you transmit VGA wirelessly to any projector.  You will need a VGA distribution amp, like a Kramer VP300 to split up the signal three ways and use a couple of wireless VGA transmitter/receivers for the monitors.  The trouble is, I haven't seen any inexpensive solutions (less than $600) that provide quality images - all the cheap ones produce terrible pictures.
