Most games are "ported" to Mac OS X using Cider, a program that basically translates Windows API calls to those of the native OS.

Regardless of how well it's done, there's always a degree of overhead with emulation of any kind. With that said, the differences should be negligible, but in general Windows should run games faster.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
