I was just wondering if anyone knows whether the new MacBook Airs have a HD camera built in. I know the most recent MBP, iMac, and Cinema Display updates added "HD" cameras, but I haven't seen anything on this. On the Apple Specs page it just lists the camera as a "FaceTime Camera." If someone with a new MBA could just open Photobooth and check for me, I would greatly appreciate it.

I doubt that they simply decided to not include it. They already have it in all the other models so if it was possible they would've just included it. It's not that expensive either. It probably was a hardware limitation with the Air..
