Anyone have any suggestions on what would be fairly cheap yet very reliable? I have yet to buy one as I don't know what to look for. =/

Well I own a Mac but I use bootcamp and run windows on my mac so I do use AVG and think it's the best Anti-Virus software out there. As far as mac and viruses I have never had any. I am sure you have people making viruses for mac but we are no where near targeted like Pc users.

Macs are pricey but you need to add the price of the yearly subscription of the antivirus software. Even anti-virus doesn't stop them, my father in law had it and his computer became infected and became unusable, I got him to get an IMac and he hasn't had an issue yet. also, unless you are a wiz that can do your own file backups and doing your own reimaging this will be very costly. Maybe initially the Mac will be expensive but it will pay for it self at the end, plus you get a free one year support warranty and can get it fixed anytime. With pcs you have to call a help desk in another country and it is a pain in the butt to get your computer fixed. I dealt with pcs since I was 14 and I can tell you that it feels great not running weekly spyware scans ore virus scans :) I have a Mac book pro and an iPad2, I couldn't be happier with them.

David not to mention the buggy Microsoft OS operating systems that cost 500+ LMFAO!!! No freaking thank you speaking of OS I will be upgrading to Lion OSX for 29.00! Can't beat that.... Macs are expensive but their Customer Support/ Hardware is superior to anything else I have ever owned or had to deal with. I also have an Ipad 2 and a macbook pro. And I have always had great experiences with apple products.

Yeah the retail customer service is excellent :) :clap: my Mac never freezes and I never need to open the task manager to force quit apps like I do with pcs lol

Yeah and Virus Software slows down a machine ... I love not having to run it on my mac. I only use boot camp for certain programs that's it!

Avast is a great free antivirus...

Apple user's make me laugh because they pay ridiculous amounts of monies to buy something and only use it for stuff my 200 dollar phone can do.

All I have to say is that once you buy an Apple you will never go back to PC :)

I've had much better luck with Avast.. Think it's superior, the auto update is a lot more seamless and seems to do a better job notifying me of threats.
