I am using a Mac Mini with OS X Lion.

  1. Will viruses affect OS X Lion just like Windows (booting etc.)?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  1. It's a popular operating system, so yes there will be viruses
  2. No Apple doesn't, but because of it's design it's relatively secure (but not 100% secure)
  3. VirusBarrier Express
