A week ago I was order to find a webcam for my mothers laptop so should could keep in contact with her children.
Most laptops/notebooks come with a webcam as standard these days, but occasionally they don't.
Now obviosuly your standard webcam won't be able to 'stand' on top on the laptop screen, so thought I would have to pay a lot of a bad webcam as I knew the market wouldn't have many notebook webcams.
I found a couple, but decided to go with the lifecam from microsoft. Not the most expensive, and was expecting to pay more, so was happy to go with this.
The webcam arrived, had to install the software fromt he CD first then plug in during installation. Easy enough.
Webcam easily clipped on top of the laptop screen (adjusts to the thickness of your laptop). Webcam on (using skype). Lovely!
Very impressed with everything from the installation to the quality. Definitely worth the money!
