Sure the aesthetics are one point why you want a mac. And jsutified, so, Macs DO look good.
But if you are just tired of viruses consider setting your computer up to resist them. Unless you do that, you'll only end up frustrated if a switch to Mac OS is too cumbersome for you.
My tips to keep PC's running very smoothly:
Use AVG AntiVirus Free Edition
Keep Windows Firewall on
use a hardware wireless router that has a firewall.
Buy TuneUp Utilities 2006 . Use it to clean and maintain your computer.
I have 3 PC's in my home I maintain for my family, and all never saw a virus. It's all about knowing how to take care. Crashes will be fixed with TuneUp.
If that all doesn't help, sure, take a look at macs. But don't make hasty decisions you'll regret, because Macs ARE different, and there IS a learning curve, and Macs DON'T do everything your heart might desire. (It does everything MY heart desires, though ;-) ).
