    The external obne is easier to position if you are doing anything else besides face to face chats.

    Picture quality wise I can't tell a difference.

    Note, however, that if you want to buy an iSight, you'll be spending a minimum of $150 for a used one, $280-300 for a new one.

    The market is crazy for them b/c they're discontinued...

    Both are the same unless you look real close. The picture is a little bit more squarish in the corners and sides for the external iSight. The built in iSights have more rounded images in the corners/sides.

    But both are good. And the built in one is very convenient to carry since you don't need a cable or stand/holder.
