Well, apple might not be as prone to virii or malware as windows is due to its lack of market share, BUT, I have yet to see a PC that explodes when its NOT PLUGGED IN. Way to go apple! Way to exceed the PC standard by EXPLODING as opposed to just running!

Um , it`s happend to PC laptops quite a few times recently. Lithium Ion Batteries are extremely dangerous if mistreated or get to hot or get Short-circuited. Most laptops, be it apple or PC use Litium Ion batteries

I just dont like apple's direction of campaigns against the pc. I am used to this type of marketing in a presidential campaign, but not a pc manufacturer's marketting campaign.
