    Like a 400 mhz G4?

    I think it has USB 1.1 and not anything w/ 2 so I'm worried he might buy one and it won't work. ;)

    I have a G4 to test any camera he might buy first. My brother needs one for an online class so I'm willing to take a risk or two.

    Any ideas on a good camera?

    Btw. iSight is NOT an option. I Am thinking something that is < 50 if possible.

    Will the USB bus speed make a big difference? If it's a little laggy, it's ok.

    I recently used an Ariston iSee Pro on a 667 PB G4. It seemed very useable on USB1.1. Didn't have any low frame rate problems, that I recall.
