    I wanna get a mac mini for my parents, but now that Apple is dropping the iSights, will any webcam work for mac osx? And if so, reccomendations?

    I think that the lack of iSights will be addressed at MacWorld.

    Or you could an iSight on eBay.

    Or there are other mac-compatible cameras, i'll let other people give some suggestions...

    I had a logitech one that was mac-compatibale I'm pretty sure is was the Pro 4000 model, I'd have to check on that though. I used it with an imac and never had any problems.

    This could be useful. I used this plugin with old QuickCam Express, worked for Skype, poorly for Delicious Library, but it doesn't work with iChat or iMovie.

    I for one, am looking forward to Apple relaunching a revised external iSight.

    I'd just wait a bit and see if Apple updates the iSight.
