    Hi, Jack. Yes, there is an ongoing debate about protection on the Mac. I have used anti-virus software for 14 years on the Mac, and personal firewall for the last 6 years. Never have had a problem. My Panther anti-virus/firewall software should be here by Friday.

    Nice kit - im not a mac man but know few use iMac and darn they go but what im told.

    It's amazing, I paid less for this system and printer (Brother Laser), than I did for the old Mac Classic 14 years ago (9" B&W screen), 8 MHz (150 times faster) processor with 4MB of RAM (130 times more now) and 80 MB HD (1,000 times larger now) and an HP Inkjet printer.
