Microsoft has two new LifeCams coming, just in time to stuff some stockings.

Designed for notebooks, the LifeCam NX-3000 has 1.3 megapixels and 640 × 480 video. For an extra 40 bucks, the VX-7000 has 2 megapixels and a 71-degree, wide-angle lens for desktops. Both promise high-def stills as well as features for Photo Swap, Windows Live Call Button and Windows Live Messenger.

Unless you’re into the MS extras, neither one looks a whole lot different than your average desktop webcam except for the brushed metal. Maybe the word “Life” shows you’re a lot more caring than the average weird webcam owner.

Both cams are currently on pre-order for $59.95 (NX-3000) and $99.95 (VX-7000).
