    airport extreme is much faster than the iSight will be able to transfer data usually. I mean what, the limit in iChat is 2mbps, 802.11b alone can handle a theoretical 11mbps, 802.11g 54mbps.
    i have an iSight and an AE base station, works fine, but my DSL sucks :p

    the iSight rocks :)
    Get one, unless you have better things to spend your money on. In that case, get a USB webcam or a cheaper FireWire one and use iChatUSB.

    iSight webcam has no equal for the price.

    Because the excellent twin microphone design effectively filters background noise, and the quality of the light sensing video, the FireWire iSight is an outstanding value at less than $150, and is highly rated and praised in the PC and Mac worlds for its value & quality.
    Why waste your money on cheap USB junk or an inferior product?
    Check out how well the case and other parts are designed, then you will totally understand what a good deal the iSight truly is.
    Perfect for iChat Audio/Video conferencing. PERFECT!

    Really great webcam. No complaints about the iSight at all (well, perhaps the color balance could still be a bit better). Now iSight A/V's compatibility with AIM is another story.
