    I want to get a webcam for my ibook but it costs to much money. Does anyone know a cheaper alternative that is mac compatible

    A year ago, I bought a logitech's orbit and I didn't like it at all. It simply didn't work properly with my PowerBook. I sold it and I bought an iSight.
    I hope there's something out there cheaper but I wouldn't dare to try it.
    I would save until I have enough for an iSight.

    iSight is the only webcam worth having. There are a few others connected by USB and FireWire but none come close to giving the great quality that iSight gives.

    Keep in mind that Apple is currently not shipping iSights...expected availability (probably a new model) is October.

    I'm waiting for a new iSight myself.

    I'm hoping for a new one which includes a remote control, Front Row and Photo Booth.

    Who else would need an iSight? Only people who have an "old" Mac without an iSight (and remote, FR and PB).




    pleeease?

    They'll finish them soon since they're getting the lead out. :p
