I'm a long time PC builder/fixer/user and I just recently bought an Apple 12" PowerBook. The main reason I did this was for security. Most of us are drawn to this site because of Glocks. Most of us have a particular philosophy on security which is why we choose to own firearms. Looking at the computer side of things, I saw the huge holes and exploits in Windoze. I wanted a computer that would just work and keep my documents safe. I found all of this in the Mac. It has been rock solid, and I have been running it for months now. It isn't susceptable to viruses, spyware, etc. It has excellent encryption for your files. I can do almost everything the PC does except for the high-end games. I'll always keep a PC around for BF1942 and FarCry. I still fix my friend's and families computers on a regular basis, and continue to curse MS along the way. If you are at your witt's end with your PC, give Apple a look. They've come a long way in the last couple of years.
