    A friend of mine plays it on a new Mac Book, he uses Paralelles and just plays on a windows virtual machine.

    I've done it via bootcamp - you get native FPS.

    Yes it can.

    You just need to light your Mac on fire then buy a PC.

    Sweet, a mac vs. pc argument! I'm sure you'll be able to change his buying habits with your excellent argument.

    Not without bootcamp, parallels, WINE, or another similar program. ROA can not be played on any iteration of OSX out of the box.

    Mind giving any details / issues you encountered to save others some time? I might set it up on my work laptop for downtime during business trips

    I have no idea if it was the hotel wifi or my computer but got disconnected after 30-60 minutes from EAC or just "lost connection to server"
