    iSight on MBP and iMac
    Please be gentle as I am new to this. I just purchased an iMac 24 and a MacBook Pro. I don't think I need the .mac account so how do I set up a free account (best way, best quality) to video conference between my MacBook and the iMac when I am away from home?

    Since both are Macs, what about iChat? I don't think you need a .Mac account for this, do you?

    Nope, as long as the user opens an AIM user account (free), iChat is good to go.

    No need to install AOL/AIM software btw. This website's FAQ might help you set it up properly.
