Notebook computers have come a really long way over the last few years, so its only fitting that laptop webcams have evolved right along with them. Gone are the days of clunky, awkward PC video cameras that never seemed to attach correctly to your desktop computer, let alone connect to your laptop computer! No, indeed. Logitech and Microsoft have produced several sleek notebook cameras that will work fabulously and look fabulous while doing so. Whether you're looking to chat up mum from the college dorm or flirt with Mr. Right while he's on a business trip, these webcams will get the job done right!
Wow, this is a very popular notebook webcam! The Logitech Quickcam can stream VGA vids, can work as live video for live chatting on MSN, AOL, Yahoo messenger and can be used for video calling. The microphone is included in the basic structure so you can rest assured that your chat partner will definitely hear you. Super affordable, super quality and super sophisticated looking!
Logitech Quickcam Deluxe
The Deluxe Logitech Quickcam is also a popular model of notebook webcam! Make video calling easy with this little gem! Not only is the lens made of glass (for a clearer picture) it's possible to focus it. This clever camera can even auto-adjust lighting for you. The mic is already in place so you needn't worry about extra parts. And it comes with it's own travel case for your convenience.
If you're one of those people who prefers Microsoft products, here you go. The MS Lifecam has been specially designed for notebook computers. Not only does it offer high quality video (2.0 megapixel quality), it even has a 7.6 megapixel still photos! The microphone is built-in and the camera itself has special face recognition technology to keep the camera from jumping all over the place when you're talking to grandma.
