Apple computers are resistant to viruses. Apple computers get infected by viruses. I don't know what to think anymore.

I'm not an Apple hater, but it would be awesome if the hackers proved this wrong with another virus tomorrow.

There's no such thing as a computer that can't be infected. But, if you're trying to infect computers, why would you focus your time and efforts on 15% (Apple) of the market instead of 85% (PC)? It doesn't make sense to target them unless you're going after something specific on someone's Apple computer.

If the percentages were reversed, people would say the same about PCs.

This has been my argument to the sack suckers for a long time. You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. You also do some great photoshop work

Additionally, PCs are much more secure than Macs because of this fact. The idea that Macs are some superior product of development is a joke. Macs just simply have a very low # of threats.

As, Macs get more popular, the number of attacks will rise exponentially.

Well, if they keep the prices up, the natural mitigation will keep idiots and morons from the product.

Mission accomplished.

Keeping prices up does not keep morons away from the product. It has the opposite effect.

Yep.

Many of my friends simply buy Apple stuff because of the supposed premium product it is. If Apple were to lower their prices, their mystique would fall with it. (Now, i will say apple laptops are fine machines from a case standpoint, but for internal hardware......really meh.)

"Higher priced.....must be better."

No, higher priced because Apple has priced in the idea that it is better.

~2% others (linux distros)
