    I am posting this for my sister. She is currently studying in South America, and so she Skypes a lot. Anyway, it's really slowing down her computer.

    I know Skype takes a lot of CPU% to run, but are there any tips to run things more smoothly? It's a Macbook Pro from Summer 2009.

    Skype is a resource hog. There's no way around it.

    Which is easier on your Mac? iChat or FaceTime?

    all 3 are resource hogs for video chatting.
