    I'm looking for a microphone to use for iChat (simple conversations, not music). My understanding is that it should be an USB mic. Any suggestions. I am interested in it looking good too. (i know.....)

    EDIT - just for audio, and infrequently. (ie..with Mom sharing her screen to fix stuff).

    Many webcams have microphones built in. If quality is not a huge concern, consider getting one of these webcams.

    I think bluetooth should also work. I got Logitech Cordless Vantage Headset and it's perfect with my PS3. I'm not sure how well it'll work in Mini. http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/gaming/playstation_3/devices/3675&cl=US,EN

    i agree with Tallest

    not sure what kind of $$$ you want to spend but a lot of people with MacPro's use this for ichat video/audio

    Thanks for the tip. I'm ordering DVI cables and a Firewire400/800 cable. Almost forgot about my external Time Machine Drive....
