no operating system is safe from malicious code writers. whether it's Mac, Linux, or Windows all systems are vulnerable and able to be attacked. Yes most viruses, worms, trojans etc. are targetted toward Windows, but that is only because Windows is the most widely used OS out. As more people go to Linux and Mac then a shift will occur and virus makers will start targetting those operating systems more often. It's the nature of the beast. Now that Mac has released the beta version of Bootcamp that will open even more doors for Mac users to get infected since they will use bootcamp to put Windows on their machines.

your a college student you dont have the time to worry about viruses, ILLEGAL OPERRATIONS! SPAM etc.

i just recently switched to mac and omg i am impressed i would never go back to windows.
i still get night mares from my old pentium 3 dell
do the right thing get a mac.
In February of 2006, two new viruses were detected that target only the Mac OSX or higher operating systems. Inqtana.A Worm and Leap.A VirusI must be one of the oddest people out there, I tried a mac, have decided that I will never go back.
Like I said windows is awsome until you try mac than. your stuck with mac forever!
I will continue to run Windows, and when it gets useless, I will go full time Linux. My custom box allows me the pleasure that a mac user, regardless of it being a laptop or desktop, doesn't have. Ease of upgrading. there is no special order manufacturer parts only. That is why I will never go Mac.
You can use the same hardware in PCs and in Macs. I just replaced my ibook hard drive from which i purchased from tigerdirect. no where on that page did it say anything about macs or pcs. standards are a beautiful thing.
