I bought a new mac book air 11 inch a few weeks ago.
Top of the range....512 SSd
I use Yahoo messnager 3.02 and Skype in my older mac air and also my I mac and I pad and I phone.
I bought the new mac air because It is A Long battery Life B ideal for travel and robust and can Plug into Large Monitor.
Sounded excllent..The apple store people told me it would work all ok with tese appns.... but Of course I didnt check it cause it was brand new and I had to take it home.
IT wont opend the I sight camera in Messenger... And Also in Skype.
Opens in Photo booth and Facetime..
Took It back to apple and I was ane to loaced skype video relacement....
lucky ... most people didnt know it was even a problem...
Appple seem to suggest to use an external camera.... But this defeats the whol purpose of have an mac air 11....
Minimalist size and Carry only a computer and power supply
It is pretty important the cam work in these apps.... especially in skype... but Yahoo is also important...
I woukd encourage apple to get a work around with yahoo... or fix the problem ASAP.
I a surgeon.. and I do need these apps to comunicate... and Im sure others will avoid the air if this is the way it is going to behave in the future.
I suggest before people buy.. get it in writing before you part with money... or have it demonstrate in the store it works..before you part with you money.
I will be very careful next time . Not a happy experience Apple.
