    The MacBooks clearly have a webcam. And I'm wondering if I can make videos with them? I know all about PhotoBooth so I'm wondering if I there is some way to record video, with voice, possibly using iMovie?

    You bet. Fire up iMovie, and look for the camera/sissor switch under the preview screen. Right click on the camera and select your iSight. From there you can record just like you would capture from a DV camera.

    My isight only records for 4 seconds and then just stops on its own. There is also a black screen that appears and i cant see what i'm recording....
