Same with PowerBooks!
For the monitors, it's an OK idea. A monitor's not going anywhere.
But for the PowerBooks, it's a BAD idea unless they make it optional. Far too many locations now prohibit bringing in anything with a camera on it... no cellcameras, no digital cameras, etc. Some people are going to find that they can't take their PB to work because of camera restrictions.
interesting point, but i doubt it will be a real issue.
places that have such stringent security restractions don't allow media devices of any kind- computer with built-in camera or not. and those places that do allow computers, usually have to be company models, equipped with monitoring software, etc.
just my experience, might be different in other places.
I have never been a fan of Cameras built into laptops everything else is fair game
but what is bad is if you can't tilt the iSight down, I plan on getting a 30" ACD some time and it will be pointing 4-5 feet over my head if i can't tilt it, as i like my monitors to be tilted up slightly and well i will be lower than the iSight level
BTW, is iMac w/ the built-in iSight comes with the microphone? I have a Sony Notebook with built-in camera but without the mic. function.
Good point... how does that work on the new iMacs, anyway? Is the camera software-steerable, or can you manually tilt and pan it?
i would assume its solid... you can't move it.... based on the idea that apple may of thought that you were properly positioning you computer...
I doubt when i get the 30" ACD no amount of proper positioning is going to make me get to the level of the top of that Monster
just grab a few phone books
i doubt the iSights will go into the pro line. It just doesn't seem...... it just seems different.
I could see a update on the iSight w/ a price drop and possibly a new form factor, but one built into a display, i doubt it.
