    yes, but I'm not sure you'd want to. the iSight is very high-quality, and you don't have to deal with possible software or driver issues that every other Mac-compatible webcam seems to have (except the old FW iSight).

    You are absolutely right about the isight, it is the best, but it cannot move around like a wired webcam. thats the only minus it has, that it is stable/fixed.
    So having decided about this, will i have any problems with iSight if i install the 3rd party webcam, can i switch them on and of when ever i want to?
