About the Mac Version
The Mac version features full Retina support, an improved "Laptop Optimized" mode, and support for a wide range of systems. Purchase of either the Mac or PC version of the game grants you access to both versions.
The minimum system required is Mac OS X 10.8/10.9 with 4GB of memory. The game will run on Intel HD 3000 & 4000 graphics cards, but those should be considered minimum requirements. For integrated chipsets like Intel Graphics, we highly recommend 8GB of memory.
