One commonality between Prezi and PowerPoint: In both cases, it can take a substantial chunk of time to create an engaging presentation. Thanks for the impressive tour!

PowerPoint is such a powerful tool, but most people use it in such a narrow context. I always think of David Byrne's use of PowerPoint to create art as a great example of thinking outside the box with PowerPoint. When used with some creativity, it can engage.

My favorite is the presentation on "Sedation" (seriously.)
