Avoid a VirusBarrier slow down with Time Capsule
Authored by: lowbatteries on Jun 26, '08 03:07:23PM

You don't have to worry about your OWN computer - no viruses exist for the Mac in the wild. The only reason you'd want a virus scanner on a Mac is to catch any viruses that may travel through your computer - like an email attachment you receive from a Windows friend, and send out to other Windows friends.

If you use a Mac machine as a file server for Windows computers, it might also be a good idea.

One of the great performance benefits of having a Mac is you don't need a virus scanner.
