    So, there are 100's of webcams out there, and all seem to generally have the same spec's. But the thing that varies is price, and I'm sure some webcams are somehow better than others.

    What I want is:

    -Atleast 1.3MP
    -I need it to be able to clip on to my Dell Latitude D630
    -Reasonable price. For instance, i'm not spending $100+ on a webcam. But i'm willing to pay more than $20, but if it does cost $20, that is fine too.

    Site's i've checked out:

    Thanks

    I have the QuickCam Pro and the Microsoft LifeCam NX-6000. Both will mount onto your laptop. The QuickCam rests on top and the NX-6000 clips on. Both are compatible with just about everything. The NX-6000 is smaller and has better quality.

    Your choice. A word of warning: Get either a Logitech or a Microsoft camera. Both are compatible with everything. I can't say that about any other brand.

    just would like to pick at the price bit.. how decent the cam will be is more or less on how much you spend on it. because you cant expect to pay a lil amount for somethink special..

    i like the logitech pro9000 an the Logitech Communicate STX is not bad for the money, video quality could be alot better but then you could buy a better one which would cost more.. so really all down to the price you really wanna spend :)
