@3: Slow down, there, partner.I know that there are a lot of misconceptions and prejudices against Macs out there, particularly in the WoW community, and particularly in my guild where the flame wars start up about once a week, but so far Hank and Binrah are not contributing to the mac hate-speech. All Hank said is that Macs have vulnerabilities. It's true. All Binrah says is that there are other, more compelling reasons to love macs besides their relative safety. True as well. That being said, Hank, yeah we're smug. Sure there are viruses and trojans out there that can affect macs or the unix core, but not many, and they are often associated with the mac versions of Microsoft products. We Mac users are smug about a lot of things, and justifiably so, but you are right that one should never buy a Mac because someone tells you it's virus-proof. Buy it for the other thousand reasons that are true. Abulia gave you a great list to start with.
