I'm still waiting for Amazon to come out with a 52" Kindle or find a 60" quadHD LCD television I can afford to put under the glass on my conference room table for print reviews (that's enough for a 30x42 sheet at 100%, btw).
You can do this with Acrobat and a Mac as well. There's a little adapter you buy that should let you plug into a video display that I've used for presentations and the odd lecture. I do it with a laptop and a wireless mouse. I haven't tried adding comments to a pdf using Acrobat, but I'm sure it's as easy as doing the same thing to a PowerPoint presentation.

Of course you can probably also do it with a PC, too, if you have a short list of requirements and don't consider yourself cool enough for a Mac. (Sorry--couldn't resist--won't happen again)
