Is it better for me to shoot JPEG as opposed to RAW if I dont do any PP?

Re: What I don't understand is the reluctance to use PP software to alter an image.

Because there are times I don't need raw. I bought the best camera to have a choice. The t4i with its digic 5 processor produces great jpgs. Why should I post process when the camera gets it right 99% of the time?

I'm an amateur taking amateur photos, not a pro shooting a wedding. Why download hundreds of 18 meg files, if not needed? The flip side of jpgs and reduced file size is I may have to throw away some shots that could have been keepers. However the trade off seems good to me.
