Antivirus scanning in Antivirus for Mac/ NIS for Mac

Is the antivirus scanning specific for Mac only malware, Windows only, or Both?  Can anyone share their experiences with Norton for Mac as far as the impact on system resources?  I'm a recent Mac convert, and I remember how the old Norton PC programs were such resource hogs.

AV for Windows is very much lighter on system resources so I would imagine that MAC has followed suit.
