    Any antivirus you would use on any other computer. Just becuase its a particular model, it doesn't mean that a specific antivirus will work best.

    The best antivirus/security suites are offered from Kaspersky and Eset's Nod32. If you want to go free, then you have the popular AVG or Avast Anti virus.

    If you want free AV I recommend Avira. It detects more than AVG or Avast.

    Like I said in the FW thread, I use Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition 10, not to be confused with the bloatware they release under the Norton Antivirus name.

    Very good antivirus though your boot time will slightly suffer since it does an automatic virus scan of modified files at boot, as part of the auto-protect feature. You can turn this off but I left it on and it proved quite useful.
