    No, as far as I know no known virus exist for Mac computers. However, there were trojans that existed in the past but Apple released an update patch and took care of those matters.

    Also, virus doesn't really have much to do with the intel chip, it's mostly has to do with how the virus is written and programmed to do and the OS of the computer.

    Technically the Macbook is a "PC" (Personal computer), I presume you mean Windows PC. If so, yeah because Windows PC is much better right? Windows OS is plagued by viruses, trojans, bugs, etc on an annual basis. Primarily because it holds the overwhelming majority of the PC market share so hackers target Windows more. Though, the other component is Windows OS itself has underlying vulnerabilities.

    Firefox recently released Firefox 12. It doesn't appear it's resolved some of the bugs, like the one when you can't visit the last page of a thread until you clear recent history (cookies). This problem occurs sometimes not always...Very annoying problem.

    Mozilla get on it.

    The latest malware to hit OS X has been the Flashback scam, which initially started as a fake Flash player installer application that was relatively easy to avoid. However, the threat quickly morphed into a more serious threat by taking advantage of unpatched security holes in Java (which Apple has since addressed) to install on a Mac running Java by merely visiting a malicious Web page and not requiring any user attention. So far, it is estimated to have infected over 600,000 Mac systems worldwide, with the majority in the U.S. and Canada.
    Most of these estimated 600,000 Macs are likely to be older models. I don't think this Trojan has affected any OS X Lion users, at least I know of no report indicating that.

    Besides, this Trojan is relatively less harmful compared to the Trojans that have plagued Windows PC.
