    How many megapixels or what is the quality of the built-in iSight, namely compared to the external iSight that was once offered by Apple.


    Thanks!

    The built-in one has auto-focusing, so the quality is not as good...

    I had both an internal and external iSight at the same time... I'd say the quality is pretty comparable. I never noticed the focusing issue. I did notice that the internal iSight seemed to do better at dealing with poorly lit situations but that was probably just a software thing.

    I seem to remember steve jobs saying something about the internal iSight being better quality then the older one, however that may have just been marketing.
