@Nathan, millions of people have my system. But okay – Harry Nov 12 '11 at 15:07
@NathanGreenstein Parallels is not specific to him but a common platform. You are being ridiculously obtuse closing this topic. Lot of people have Macs, but since this is a virtualized environment (even though specific to Macs) is is a very common and non-specific environment. – Marius Nov 13 '11 at 16:37
To answer the question, I have it running, but had to turn all detail off... I am not sure which details are needed and which are causing the crash... if this Stack was actually useful for Mac discussions I would start one there, but it obviously is not. I will try and start a thread for this someplace else. – Marius Nov 13 '11 at 16:39
I tested it on my 2011 iMac (2.7GHz i5, Radeon 6770M) and it ran pretty poorly, even at Low detail. Looks like it'll be Boot Camp for this one. – Brant Bobby Nov 16 '11 at 3:44
