I agree with all of the comments here. While I’ve had many Macs over the years and have NEVER run any Antivirus software on any of them – nor had a problem with any of them, my advice would always be to consider installing it. As an IT guy, my advice is to always be cautious and take a few sensible steps to protect your system. Mac viruses are not prevalent at the moment, but it’s really only a matter of time. The standard ‘stay safe’ advice of don’t open attachments you aren’t expecting from people you don’t know, careful what sites you visit, and what software you install still stand in the OS X world too.

The free (for home use) Sophos for Mac can’t be beat.
