I dont understand why the new MacBooks not having firewall is a big deal...

#1
Like I really don't get it. Why are people freaking out over it? I'm trying to decide if I should get the older, black MacBook or the new one that just came out. Any help on this would be great.

Because the day someone will make a Mac virus, we're all screwed.

So what is the whole deal with macs not being able to get viruses? I never understood how they were "immune"


Macs just doesn't work the same way as Windows, and because of that (and the "popularity" of Apple) noone bothers to make a virus to infect Mac computers.

Somehow I don't think he's talking about a firewall, but firewire... the new macbooks do not have firewire because of the ability to access the hard drive and memory meant that there couldn't be a laptop-wide motherboard, thus no room for ports on both sides.

This. Why would they not have a firewall? It's not like it takes up physical space. . .
