I am alos worried about the PC/MAC thing as it is not mentioned i.e. will it work on both or not.

Secondly no security software or protection is written apart from backup software.I have checked on packard dbell site and could find the following product but it is available in pcworld.

Kindly comment as i am interested in buying this.
