Presuming the microphone is the same in each, do you think it has enough power for a lecture hall? If not, do you know of any decent, external models? Do they sell optical versions?

Thanks. :)

I've used my iBook's inbuilt mic in lectures before. So long as there's not too many people talking and the lecturer is either a good projector or on a mic themselves the quality actually surprised me. I'd imagine if I were using GarageBand instead of Word to do the recording the quality would be even better due to the auto-ducking features.

It was definitely audible, I imported the audio file into iTunes and have a couple of playlists for my subjects.

Awesome, that's what I want to do. I'm going to use QuickTime Pro though. It will be great for my 50-minute commute. :eek:

Thanks!

You can use the iSight to record the lecture in video too. Use iMovie HD.
