Based off the grapevine. ;o I've never owned a Mac before, so I wouldn't know by personal experience. I know if I had all the money in the world, I'd pay for a big game rig that works and can do all the stuff and not necessarily have bells and whistles.
Also, Fluffy, most premium antivirus programs just have bells and whistles, but can basically do the same basic thing for free. I do recommend Malwarebytes, but don't buy the premium. It can do just it's job well free-wise.
