    Don't these faggy mac computers come with a webcam? (YOU JUST BUY A COMPUTER AND IT WORKS AND YOU DONT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AMIRITE?)

    But yea, what zhuz said, just go to the mediamarkt or something, and check the packages of webcams, and see if it says "Mac compatible". Or ask someone there.

    lol, macs are awesome, i'd rather them have the majority of the support of software companies than windows. Anyways. Not all macs do, look around for mac "kexts" (macs version of a driver) search up the model number on google, see what you can find
