The C920 clips to your monitor easily, but if you need portability, the webcam even has a standard screw attachment on the bottom to fit a tripod so you can position it anywhere you need it.
If you need to take still images, the C920 will snag up to 15 megapixel still images.
Plus, Logitech's cameras are compatible with almost any operating system, including Windows, OS X, and Linux.
