Does anyone know?
I have never seen an official Apple spec for the Facetime camera resolution in the Macbook Air published anywhere. I have seen some discussions where they mentioned 0.3 Mpixel with 640 x 480 resolution on the non-HD facetime cameras, but no validation links were provided.
But, seriously, even a cheap P&S camera would be much more convenient, easier to use, and take better photos than the Macbook Air Facetime camera.
It's VGA so about 0.3 mpixel. It's fine for it's purpose though.
Mpixels are not all that matters. My old 6 mpixel DSLR makes pictures tenfolds better than your average 12 mpixel compact cam.
I'm guess next gen of MBA will get a HD Facetime camera.
The HD-Facetime cameras are on the new Macbook Pro line. Perhaps they are too thick to fit in the Air display? Plus, I think these are more of a video-cam than a photo camera so they probably don't see a need for a high resolution camera.
