PLEA FOR ADVICE!

I need a little assistance from those familiar with Macs and the latest Mac
version of CUSeeme.

We are about to set up seven remote sites sending video back from around our
province via 64k frame relay lines to a central site (reflector) in our
television studio. I am trying to put together turnkey units and feel it's
better to use Macs for the purpose.

1. Can someone give me a reasonable description (model, ram, addons etc)
for the remote machines that would be possibly one or two steps above
"bottom-of-the-line". They will do nothing other than CUSeeme and the video
is more important than the audio. Audio can also be returned from the sites
using regular POTS lines.

2. Suggest models that seem the easiest to set up and maintain.

I'm a PC systems person and have applied CU on PCs sucessfully for the same
sort of purpose.

Thanks in advance for any assistance...
