Hi,
I was just surfing www.pcworld.co.uk and found a monitor with a built in webcam. Would it work with the Mac Mini?

I don't see why not..

isn't mac mini supposed to work along with an external monitor?


looks nice.. too bad you can't get one of the juicy 30'' HD displays eh?

Yeah I know you are supposed to use an external monitor I just wasnt sure if a built in webcam would work.

And no, I cant afford a 30" display, let alone the Mac Mini itself just yet.

Also, would it would be wierd or hard to use if its taller than it is wide?

Thanks,
-Tom-

I would like to find this out as well.

Apparently non iSight webcams are hit and miss on OSX.
