I don't know. I was ready to spring for an iPod and now I want both... One question I did have though... Is the iSight on all the time? Powered up, I mean?

You can turn the iSight on and off ... it has no power-save mode like the elura that I can see ...<br><br>Also, there should be a setting somewhere on your elura to disable that power-save mode ... at least, I've heard other owners of that camera say that ...<br><br>=)<br><br>***matt<br><br>"Nothing says 'obey me!' like a bloody head on a fencepost ..."

I would imagine the iSight would stay on since it doesn't have a battery, unlike a digital camcorder... so there's no need to conserve power.<br><br>
I thinking of picking one up tonite myself.<br><br>The powerMac doesn't have a built in mic like our laptops and the iMac, so that feature will make it real handy for us to video chat from work to home.<br><br>
I checked the menu system and found nothing to disable the power-save mode. You would think that while it's connected to a power outlet it would stay on.<br><br><br><br>"640K ought to be enough for anybody." - Bill Gates <P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by G4Dualie on 06/30/03 02:42 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
cool! we're getting an iSight tonight?? YAY!! uhm, err, what if a G5 slips into the purchase? How will you explain it? It's best to sneak it in under my nose, in case you had any doubts regarding strategy.

nothing but the best for ImageWell. Quality always costs a little more <br><br>oh, and by the way the G5 is taller than the G4, so it looks like it will have to go under my desk, cause it won't fit under yours. <br><br>
