    I just purchased a Macbook. I'd never used iSight before even though I had one built in on my g5 iMac. My wife and I decided to give it a try and when we did something weird occurred. As I was on my Macbook talking with her the quality was horrible, she was all pixelated and the color was off, but then I went into the room where the iMac was and looked at her in the iMac while she was on the Macbook and the quality was great. Why would there be this discrepancy between the quality of the two machines? Was the iSight on the old iMac's a different camera than the ones on the new MacBooks?

    its the integrated graphics on the macbook thats making it look choppy, not the isight.

    you'll need to up your ram to get a more stable image.

    Ah, that makes sense. I am uping the ram on my computer tomorrow, so that should take care of it. Thank you.
