You most likely don't need a brand new computer or fancy webcam to work with us.
Any computer that runs Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 or a MAC should be fine.
If you are considering upgrading to a new computer shop for one with a Quad-core Processor. Intel i7 is ideal but a Quad-core Intel i5 is adequate for HD Streaming.
The "Netbooks" being sold now aren't a real laptop, more like an oversized cell phone. A Netbook will work if you already have one and are just starting out, but are very limited in their performance.
Regarding a webcam- the prices are super cheap for getting started. $30-$50 with a built-in microphone at almost any store that sells computer accessories. You will want a webcam that will support "864x480" resolution. You can use webcams with a higher resolution also.
The Logitech c270 is a great inexpensive webcam for around $30. The Logitech c525 is around $50.
