    I have recently switched from PC to MAC (actually waiting for my Mac to arrive any day now!). I have one question it necessary to reformat a Mac HD like I would on my PC? I find that I have to do a fresh install of Windows about every 6 months as my PC gets bogged down with stuff. Is this the same on a Mac or does a Mac stay "cleaner" as you use it (if that makes sense..)?

    Generally, no. Macs can slow down, but it's much less of an issue.
