Apple / Late 2008

Specs: iOS, 8 GB
Hello Folks,
I have Late MacBook 2008 which still working fine and I want to replace external Monitor.
Since I keep my laptop 'hidden' i.e. under the top of the desk I need to have webcam and speakers and mic on Monitor.
I was looking for 27" Monitor with built-in webcam and audio.
I found a few by ASUS but they don't support webcam for Mac.
Neither Dell nor HP have those types of Monitors.
I'm kind of frustrated ...
Are you aware of any other Vendors that do Monitors with built-in webcam and audio and would be compatible with MacBook. I assume that type of Monitors could be in category 'gaming'
Browsing 'google' didn't help me ...
Any suggestion would be appreciated ...

Thanks

✔ Best Answer
I’ve found most current monitors are ok with just about any computer. Many come with speakers, although I find the output a little low. If you buy a monitor with speaker and use an external webcam your problems are solved?

I have a Samsung 27 ins screen with built in speakers, and use a Logitech webcam plugged into a Mac USB port. MacBooks are short on USB ports so add a powered USB hub if you need more ports. I have a D-link 6 port powered hub which is excellent.

edited per trvl to correct type (Ma to Mac)

Hi
Thanks for comments.
I also use Logitech camera which has mic as well.
It works fine but my goal is to have nothing but Monitor on the desk 😎

Incidentally the Samsung monitor I have includes a few USB ports in its base... So possibly using one of those for a Logitech or similar camera might help rescue cable clutter on the desk area?
