Well, if you are getting a Mac capable of running Facetime, you will not be disappointed. It is similar to other video-chat type apps like skype, but it is very easy to use and I was quite surprised how much I use it myself. When I am at a convention or somewhere else around the US and away from home, I use it to videochat with my Wife and Kids. Great little app.Well I'm getting one anyway... I need it for App development... Facetime will just be a plus!
