I learned on a Mac and have always had them. I got my first one as part of a job perks package and the university where I worked had all Macs. I
wouldn't use anything else. My husband, however, learned on a PC and he absolutely hates my Mac. He says it is ridiculously hard to use. I feel
the same way about PC's. Somehow, our marriage has lasted, though
As far as not being able to upgrade Macs, that is simply not true. I got my present one in 08 and have since been able to upgrade it to an OSX10.6
Unfortunately, it is no longer true that Macs are impervious to viruses and malware. There have been some designed lately especially for the OSX's.
I know because I've had a few. Apparently, the more the Mac grows in popularity the more tempting it is to invade it.
I strongly recommend ClamXav, which is a malware scanner usable on the Mac. I have downloaded the free version and am very happy with it. You can
set the preferences on it to quarantine contaminated files in a separate folder and from there secure delete them from your system.
You can download it here:
Congratulations on your excellent choice of a computer and may you have a long and lasting relationship with Macs.
