Acer laptop computers have a built in webcam and microphone. This allows you to communicate with other individuals via online video chat. However, the microphone is not of professional-grade quality. So, if you are looking to improve on the audio recording your computer is picking up, connect a new microphone to the line-in connection and adjust the computer so it receives the audio from the line-in connection instead of the built-in mic.
