Shocked

Just wondering if anyone could tell me how good the Mac Mini is with isight AV. I'm really looking forward to Tiger's isight av but need to know if the Mac mini ( 1.4 ghz and 512 Ram) is smooth enough for the video confrencing. Has anyone tested this out?

---Thanks

The video with iSight is totally acceptable with Mac mini. Plus you get a half-decent microphone for audio input.

Beware that while you will be able to participate in a 4 person video conference, you will not be able to initiate it using a mini.

TO do that you need a dual 1Ghz g4 or a g5.

Thanks. I just read that somewhere else, much to my disapointment. They should've made the Mini Mac with full/minimum requirements for Tiger OS/X since they both are coming out so soon. Guess I'll just buy an IMac...
