Because there isn't one unless you're an audio or video editor.
I only go back 11 years but I've had exactly zero virus's. I've never had a lot of money so all my systems over the years have been the economy self built models. I can't say I've ever had a problem with Windows or programs not working properly or not working at all and I spend a great deal of time online. I wish I could say the same for my ipod.
Eh, I use a mac, and have since 1992. I've used PCs too, but have always come back to the mac. If you want to buy a Mac, then buy one. If you are looking to buy an inexpensive computer (which it sounds like you are,) then get a PC. I always came back to mac, because they "just work." These days, I think PCs are pretty much the same now. They just work.
No DRice, I am not going to say that because I do not have the knowledge or authority to do so. I do know I (and I am speaking personally) have had less issues since I bought my iMac. Yeah, I am a gadget whore and love the small things (I have a Time Capsule and will probably be getting another Mac laptop soon and an iPhone if they move to Verizon) and Mac fills that need. The service, when I have called for my old laptop, has been great an not the "oh you don't know that" when I have talked with people about PC's.
That is my take. Try it out at a Mac store, and if you do not like it get a PC you want.
btw karma for the Commodore 64 with the Tape drive
As, for the OP, I agree with PuckMonkey. Just buy a PC.
Question for the Mac users: Is it easy to find all types of software torrents like it is for a PC?
BTW: Long live the Commodore 64. There's a great emulator out there http://www.ccs64.com/ in case you don't want the memory of the C64 to die.
I work on macs everyday with the adobe suite, but at home I bought a much more powerful laptop with the same money as I could a mac.I love macs but apple is way too over priced. No viruses and I still get my adobe suite on my pc. I'll save my benjamins and buy pc, just run and update your anti-virus program.
