I am planning on getting an Apple Macbook soon (for my hospital stay when I am recieving a bone marrow transplant, I can not LIVE without a computer). anyways... my question is this...

I know there is aMSN for OSX, it supports video chat, but not voice. I *need* voice *and* Video together, as I use MSN messenger with webcam and microphone every day for hours and hours..so..my question is: Will MSN messenger, on Windows XP, through Parellels, running on OSX, be able to use the iSight camera and mic at the same time? I searched the forums for this answer and didn't find it..

Wont it be easier to use BootCamp, WinXP and then MSN. Id hope the inbuilt stuff would still work with bootcamp since you make a Mac driver disc and id hate to think Apple didnt bother including them.

Oh and best of luck for the hospital stay

I don't think parallels supports the iSight (I don't have my External drive with my XP install on to test) but I think BootCamp has gotten the iSight to work

Yes, the iSight will work with Bootcamp. As a side note, MS just released MSN 6.0 for Mac (not a huge improvement) but why that's important is they also announced they're actively working on supporting video/voice in the next version.

Adium is also supposed to be working on bringing video/chat to their service but I don't know if this will be happening soon...
