    I own a white MacBook from 2007 and was just curious whether the iSight camera built-in have improved from the one I have currently in my MacBook? Higher res for iChat/Photo Booth etc. ?

    Yes! I had a mid 2007 blackbook and the camera quality has really improved!

    On the macbook everything used to be yellowish but now I have a mbp and it is all crystal white and very clear.

    Go to apple or best buy and see it, you will notice it.

    I don't think so, my iMac 2007 iSight is the SAME quality as my 2010 MacBook Pro

    0.3 Megapixels??? Cheap $80 cellphones have better cameras, they have 0.5 megapixels. And my $200 cellphone has a 1.3 megapixal camera. Come on Apple, 0.3 is hardly fit for a Pro laptop. They can afford to make it at LEAST 1.0 megapixel.

    From Wikipedia: "With the LED-Backlit MacBook Pros, Apple has moved to using a sensor capable of 1280x1024 pixels, but when accessed using provided APIs, the image is re-sampled to 640x480 pixels."
