Apple's get viruses...
As an Apple Genius, I will say that you're right. Macs do get viruses, but at a significantly lower percentage as Windows users experience. Macs also use what's called "sandboxing" which is built into Mac OSX which restricts what programs can do on your Mac. So yeah, you get a virus, chances are very slim, but the chances of it being a malicious are much more slim. All apps that come on OSX are also 64-bit.
I've been using a Mac since 2005, and never have had one virus. ever.
With no virus protection.

This is true also, but the market share is growing. And growing quick.
And to get a virus on an iOS device is extremely difficult, if not impossible. And if there ever was, you bet there would be an update covering the hole(s) a week later.
As to the OP: Always will recommend a Mac to anyone. But, since you're using Windows, Norton is about the WORST AV.
Go with Avast. It's light, does the job, and it's free.
AVG is ok, until you want to completely remove it. And I mean completely, not just going through the control panel.
