I have 10.4.5 running on my inspiron and I want to try to mod an isight camera into the top of the screen using a little bondo and then painting everything black. Does anyone know of a vendor that sells the isight cameras used in either the G5/intel imacs, or any of the powerbooks with cameras? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :)

I don't think anyone would take their iMac/Macbook/Macbook Pro apart just to take out the iSight and sell it. Even if they did, you have one heck of a time trying to get it in there and work. I don't know any resellers. Good luck with that.

I was just trying to figure out if there are other companies, similar to allmac, that would sell something like that. I guess I am just trying to find someone who perhaps broke their laptop and is selling the parts. Does anyone know of an alternative to allmac that might carry the piece?

You could always just buy the external iSight camera. I know you want the internal one that's embeded in the monitor itself, but your chances of getting your hands on one are low.

Alright I think I'll give up on that idea for now, but I appreciate the input guys.
