    Some Queries
    I am going to buy one MacBook.I have some doubts. Pls clarify these:
    1. I am having one wireless dsl router. Can I connect it to Macbook.
    2. C,C++,Java compiler is available for Mac?
    3. I have heard that gtalk is not supported in Mac. So if I want to video chat with someone who is not having Mac then what is the way to do it.
    4. Does MAC has codec support for .avi,.3gp,.flv, .wmv etc?

    I prefer to use iChat for Google Talk and AIM. Adium does not support audio or video chats yet.

    In response to (4), you should download Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTimeŽ components. As for .wmv files, download the free WMV Player.

    Also, for video chatting with a PC, I think Skype is the best. It's free for computer-to-computer text, audio, and video chats.
