New MAC and Anti-Virus question

I've yet to receive my new IMAC (long time Windows user), but I have a question/concern about Anti-Virus software on the new (for me) system.
While I was at the local Apple store before I purchased my IMAC, I was talking with a store representative and he was basically stating that I really wouldn't need Anti-Virus software.
I understand that the hackers out there prefer Windows as a "target", but his statement didn't quite sound right to me.
Can anyone share some light on this subject? Thanks.

Or even the other virus thread just from today.

In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
