Nope. It's all about how you use them.

And once again, people assuming PC=Windows.

It's not so much that using IE will attract trouble on its own... it's just that if you do venture into dodgy areas of the interwebz which are rife with viruses/spyware, IE will not save your ass.

nah, my school is all macs and they are incredibly buggy pieces of ****. I know you would expect school computers to be a little rough but seriously, macs have never impressed me with their stability.

My macbook has been running 1 year and 40 days (according to my bit torrent stats) and I've had it for 1 year and 80 days. I only turn it off to clean off the nicotine stains.

the fact remains that macs dont tend to get viruses no matter where you travel in the vast realm of the internet.

I forgot to mention I have burned at least 500 discs with my macbook though I had to get it repaired it was just the burner. But I think P.C's are better for people that know computers well, macs are just much more user friendly thats really about it. Mac's suck a$$ for gaming not to mention the vast amount of great homebrew and freeware available for P.C.

Again, you're equating PCs with Windows. Unix is far more stable and safer than windows and OSX. Besides, when I used to run windows I never had a virus or any problem. Know why? Because I know how to work a computer, I know what is safe and unsafe.

PC's are really not that complicated. Just some times you have to be patient and figure things out. If you have any computer skills at all you should be able to use PC. I do not see anything very special about Macs only thing I find cool is Garage Band.
