@prettywootprincess: male or female? laptop or workstation? used for crazy stuff like skype, or just to hang out? Built in mic or not?

How do you know that the mac in question doesn't already have a builtin webcam? Sometimes they do (if it's a laptop).

@prettywootprincess: I see that both your choices had a built-in mic, so I'm thinking that was deliberate. I like the one that's on Overstock (in your initial link). Please note the the stripped down one I posted has no mic.

McCally is pretty good on the mac side. I have a USB floppy drive (don't ask), and it's just been rock solid. I'm also a big fan of Logitech, but since my main platform is FreeBSD, that shouldn't necessarily be your first choice.

It's for a Laptop I am thinking the McCally cause its pretty (IceCam), I worked for Best Buy and I'm ok with their Dynex brand but its not as cool looking. I would say no more the $50 but idk.

Oh its for simple web caming I think like yahoo or whatever Mac's use. I know they wanna use MSN messenger but can you on a Mac?

They'll want to download Firefox for browsing; much better than Safari.

@catbertthegreat: As I just pointed out on your deal, it's the same one as princess had pointed out.

I think there's less than a dollar in difference. Yep. Overstock is at $25.49, and the deal you posted is $24.99. Oh, how the mighty Catbert has fallen.

@shrdlu: I forgot to look at what she posted in the initial question.

@catbertthegreat: Hey, I'm the one that posted a deal for a lesser Icecam, and THEN looked at the outpost deal, so I can't talk either.

We need another climbing wall deal anyway. That was fun.
