    it has the same resolution as the stand-alone iSight.

    VGA, 640x480 (0.3 Megapixel)

    Keep in mind that it's a webcam, and a higher resolution means higher internet bandwidth requirements.

    Wow, you must have quite a huge bandwidth if you can use that at full resolution for video chat...

    According to Apple's GSX (global service exchange), they all have 640x480 resolution, even the built-in one's.
    Not everything on Wikipedia is correct... :cool:
