Apple Almost everything has a processor and/or memory chips these days, including keyboards. Apple's keyboards are no exception; they have 8Kb of flash memory, and 256 bytes of RAM. K. Chen has found a way to very easily install keyloggers and other possibly malicious code right inside these Apple keyboards (more here). Proof of concept code is here as well.

Probably the hackintoshes are more secure than Macs because of the wide variety of hardware for PCs !

This is the reason why i am happy with my grey PC with a linux distribution. There are M x N different hardware/software combinations to malwares infect, which is much less probable.
