I don't play on OSX, but from what I've heard, you'll get more frames if you bootcamp to Windows
I found this thread:
Personally, I think you'll be struggling on high settings, but you should have no problem running on mid-low. (on windows)

The biggest problem is the graphics card. Older MacBook pros have Invidia and run the game better. I have a pro from 2008 and can run on medium with 20+ fps (except WvW Zerg ofc) and access TP.

My Mac Book is a couple years old but I don't know the specs off the top of my head. If I remember I'll try to edit my post with details.
Overall I think it is much more enjoyable to play on something that can run the game on high but I still have a lot of fun on my mac.

people are talking about bootcamp because it generally runs better in windows than it does on the mac client. I have both the mac client and boot camp on my MBP, and it runs better in windows. That being said, if it runs well enough for you to enjoy yourself, and you don't want to deal with installing boot camp (which can be a real pain... if anyone needs help with it, feel free to PM me), yes, the mac client runs fine, and yes OP, I'm sure it will run fine on your machine.

Mmmm I was thinking of wine not bootcamp. I couldn't figure out how people were getting better frames while simulating windows through a program... then I realized I'm an idiot haha.
Anyways yeah I'm too lazy to bother with a dual boot setup and while the random crashes can be annoying, I've gotten use to them haha. Thanks for the reply!
edit: I can grammar, I swears it!
