Check to be sure your laptop doesn’t have an internal mic. Most do these days, even netbooks, If it doesn’t,any mic that plugs into yourmic-in port will work with Skype. You can get one at Radio Shack, Fry’s, online, any number of places. And you don’t need an expensive one.

Get a friend to give you a mike.

Pretty much any store that sells electronics.
Even your local Target or Walmart will carry microphones.

Your laptop probably has a built-in microphone though. Most do these days, along with a webcam.
If you’re using Windows (Xp, Vista, or 7), go to Control Panel and find Sound. Open it up and go to the “Recording” tab, in there you’ll see if there is a microphone connected or not.
