    Check out the link in the post and they have a GW2 Mac client beta already out for download.


    Depends on her specs of her computer I would guess but if your's can run it hers probably will. I never used Mac so I was on the apple diet :)

    Wow. Had no idea it would be out so soon! Finally, I can delete my Windows 7 bootcamp partition once and for all! :)

    Eh, minimum requirements had it running, but very choppy even with the graphics set to "best performance." :<

    Runs like a dream on my July 2012 13" MBP w/16gb RAM.

    Played for about 4 hours, reported about 6 minor bugs and then proceeded to reclaim 250gb from Bootcamp/Windows 7 by removing the partition.

    This surprise client release was a huge and unexpected but welcome success!

    Time to be nice and do some upgrades for her Syrus!


    Being a Mac Beta client though it may be doing more GPU based than CPU like the previous beta.s for windows. Just a possabilty but not sure.
