1. Do I need a usb sound card to be able to connect my Creative 5.1 surround system or can I get a digital optical cable with 5 inputs? 2. My Panasonic G-120 camcorder, webcam feature doesn´t seem to work with Macs. So I guesss I need a webcam; what is the best buy? 3. Scanner. I don´t know anyting about scanners, but my wife needs one mac compatitble that scans texts and graphics FAST. We had a Printer/Scanner and the driver that came with it sucks with the iMac...and it is slooooow. She won´t be scanning any films, so a *normal* resolution is fine. Please suggest what is best to buy. I´m a bit on a budget so I´m looking for the best price/quality ratio. Thanks!
