Well well, this is the situation. My dad is moving to Boston (not splitsville, but for job), while my mom and I stay here. As we are a rather close family (and he will be flying back every two weeks or so), we've decided to use webcam technology. As I have a PB and the family has a Dell Inspiron (which he'll be taking), we were first thinking about getting an iSight for the Powerbook and another (or maybe a Logitech?) for the Dell. But now my mom has become interested in a MacBook with the built-in iSight. We don't know what to do. Here are the questions: (1) If I have a Mac and he has a Dell, there should be no problems with video/talking, so long as I use iChat and he uses AIM Triton? (2) What is "AIM Triton"? I downloaded it on the Dell, but it's sort of confusing to use compared to regular AIM. (3) Since my dad is bringing the Dell and the only computers we'd have at home would be my PB and an old Dell desktop, would it be better off getting a MacBook, and buying just 1 webcam instead of two? (Money is no factor, since my mom is sort of interested/prepared to buy a new laptop) (4) Any popular/good alternatives to an iSight? (they are rather expensive) I am so sorry with all these questions, but I am totally unfamiliar with iChat AV/webcamming. We just need an easy-to-use, reliable way to see each other on a daily basis without overly complicated steps to setup and talk. Thanks for advice!
