Folks always ask me about virus protection for their Mac. The main question....do they need it? While Macs aren't immune to viruses, it has been rare that anything targeting a Mac has made the rounds. Yet, it does happen. And there is some belief among the experts that the growing popularity of Mac products makes them more of a target.
But it has still been a tough decision. Spend a lot of money on something that you might never benefit from...while enduring the issues of slowing down your computer, dealing with virus application updates, etc.
