Not completely. And should I delete the comments above? I cant seem to find one that is the same oddly. I don't want to look like we tried to close this for no reason.

I suppose, I am not cut out for this closing and links type job am I? I'll just stick to answering questions. I think deleting them would be good.

if i could i would have a macbook pro right now but i dont have the money to buy one at the moment i would think there just as good for programming but they are the #1 choice of collage kids so they must be good for students and its true because os x is run on unix and is ammuine to windows virus's

1) Yes they do. It is ignorant and annoying to think otherwise.

2) How so? Windows based computers are just as good for programming.

By the way, I am answering this question on my iMac. Just because you use a certain OS, doesn't mean it's perfect.

Justin, I think it is annoying to think they just can. Sure, no OS is secure, but in a decade, OS X has still NOT A SINGLE virus. I think that counts for something. I find it weird that there's a handful of pathetic attemtps at trojans and spyware, but ZERO viruses. The other types of malware that DO exist for the Mac proves that there's some interest in attacking the Mac, yet no virus. Plus, many OSes less popular than the Mac have viruses, including OS 9.

I think it is safe to assume, "No viruses" as a selling point.
