    I am looking for a good, Mac-compatible digital photo frame to give as a gift. I have read a ton of information online, but I still don't feel like I can make an educated decision. So I'm asking for recommendations from the pros here.

    Ideally, I want a 15-inch frame that has Wi-Fi capability. It would be nice if it had speakers, too. All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Don't do digital photo frames. Giving a digital photo frame is like giving a weird gadget you're trying to force on someone who doesn't want it - even if they care about tech. Giving someone a nicely framed picture is strongly sentimental and classy. Giving one picture means you gave thought. Giving a photo frame with 200 pictures means you don't care enough or don't know them well enough to know what they'll appreciate.

    Digital photo frames look pretty cheezy. I second the suggestion to get some real prints.

    I agree that a digital frame kind of cheats a good photo. It may be fine for a group of family snapshots but you can't seriously engage a photo that goes away on it's own.
    It's not much of a Mac issue, but I have read of some really nasty viruses being spread by them.

    Nonsense. My sister-in-law gave my 92-year-old mother a digital picture frame in the last year of her life. She thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the pictures of her children, grand children, and great-grandchildren and other family members.
