Oh no, just realized that pokerstars cannot be run on a mac. Is there any easy way to get it to run besides Bootcamp or parallels? Any way to run .exe's? I am a Mac noob so please forgive me.

I am getting a Mac for school soon, and I cannot go away with no pokerstars!!

Mac's do not run .exe files.

The only thing I can think of is using either Bootcamp or Parallels. Sorry I know you didn't want to use those but that's all I could think of.

well Bootcamp wouldnt work because I dont want to restart everytime I want to play poker, but how do parallels work? Ill have to go reading up. Would I still be able to be on OS X and play pokerstars at the same time with parallels? I hate being a n00b!!

Yes Parallels does exactly that.

Don't know if it helps, but full tilt poker is mac friendly.
