    Unless you use a special adapter cable, the microphone will only work on late-model Macbook Pros, and iMacs. Event then, it will not work when running Windows under Bootcamp (although it may in the future if Apple updates their Bootcamp drivers).

    You can get adapter cables, though, that convert the special 4-ring 3.5mm headphone jack to two standard 3.5mm jacks, which will plug into the normal headphone & microphone jacks of any PC. If you're into soldering, I've even seen articles online describing how you can make one yourself.

    Hope this helps.
