    I have a 12" Powerbook (1.5GHz) and want to buy an external microphone (mainly for using Skype). Since the Powerbook only has line in, what would you recommend me to buy?

    i do not work for sony!

    I was using this with my minidisk recorder and it worked great -- very nice sound -- and will be useful if you ever want to flip open garageband for a quick jaunt through lounge-mic lane -- it's battery powered so you don't need a pre-amp, very portable, and more or less cool looking.

    clique!

    180 bucks for a pre-amplifier? I just want to use it for Skype... and I don't want to carry around a pre-amplifier AND a microphone. I'll probably have a look at bluetooth headsets, that seems to be the cheaper and more portable solution.
