Maybe you should just get an iPad instead

found on Meme Center

They used to advise people to get Apple computers in order to get a computer without having to worry about viruses. Some people still do give and/or follow that advice, but the Mac wasn't virus proof and as time has gone on it has become a bigger and bigger target. I think it's only a matter of time before the dominant advice shifts to "Get an iPad" because it's even more virus-resistant and it can do pretty much anything the average person would use a computer for these days.

Of course, with a large enough market share, the iPad will eventually succumb to the perils of malware as well. It may look different than the malware problem we're familiar with now, but one way or another if the money is there then the attackers will try to find ways to take it.
