    How good is the Built in Webcam in the Macbooks??
    is the built in webcam in the macbooks and macbook pros pretty good quality?

    are they the same as the separate isight?
    would i have to buy a separate microphone or is this built in as well?

    It is the highest quality webcam that I have seen. It is the same as the separate iSight and the microphone is built in. Of course quality of chats depends on how much bandwidth you have

    Agreed with trpnmonkey, the iSight is the best looking WebCam I have ever used. The internal one is the same as the external in quality.

    the camera on the pro and the regular macbook is the same right?

    The one difference I'm aware of between the built-in camera and the external iSight is that the external has the ability to focus. The internal one has a fixed focus.

    I can't be sure the image sensor is any different, but I have both, and they both do a great job.

    I have a macbook pro and have used the webcam. The quality is just incredible!! Since my old pc has a logitech cam that is no where as good as the mac one.

    It's the best webcam i've ever used. I would recommend a USB mic. Anything over $48 will work for almost anything you could want to do, including Voice Recognition.

    you dont think the microphone built in the laptop is good?

    by the way i just got a macbookpro yesterday and i dont know if its just the lighting in my room but the pic is pretty grainy and poor quality>?

    when u guys say its excellent can u take a pic to show this pls?

    the pic matt posted looks a bit better quality than mine but doedsnt make me say WOW

    i put a lamp real close to the camera so that the flash wouldnt brighten me up and turn me blue. i tends to do that for some reason but thats all the light i used nothing in the background
