Except you don't plan to use pendrives, external harddrives, memory cards and all sort of removable drives and internet, then you will do fine without an anti-virus

You MUST have anti-virus or internet protection on any machine that connects to the internet, or you'll have problems.

Check out Microsoft Security Essentials, it's free and works very good.

Avira, Avast, Microsoft Security Essentials and AVG are all free and highly rated ( although AVG just had some problems ) and will protect you as well as any paid solution.

PC yes, Uncle Billy Gates made sure of this by creating a fairly open system.

Ixxxx no, Grandpa Stevie Jobs presence in this reality negates the remote posibility of malware infecting OSX. The Ixxxx is routed through SJ's brain and only apps that he has blessed can be installed or run, so they never get a chance.

Antivirus software is important for anyone that have a laptop or computer, whether it is used for professional purposes, personal reasons, or both. Not having the proper anti virus software installed, can find people in a serious bind within a relatively short time.
