typical Mathematica itself is used for presentations.
That's why you can switch into the presentation mode and
it has several positive effects 
- you can evaluate 
- you can show animations

If you have a alot of equations and don't need the evaluation
feature you can still use pdftex with the pdfsceen package
to get perfect presentations.
