The iSight is a USB Web cam that is designed to work with computers running the Mac OS X operating system. If you install the software drivers required to run the camera on a Windows XP machine, however, you can get the iSight up and running on a non-Apple computer. The CD-ROM that came with the iSight will not work towards this purpose, though--you'll have to download the iSight driver designed for Windows XP from the Internet.
