I was able to get the game set up on my Macbook Pro in Bootcamp using Win 7, and it seemed to be running ok on low settings. Granted I haven't had time to do much running in around in game yet (still trying to get a PS3 controler to work correctly with it) but at the least it should be usable if a little laggy. Far as I know most newer mac should run XIV provided you can boot Win7 on it, though I haven't tried with Parallels and likely won't cause the division of system resources would likely push specs below the minimum, as most of them use intel chips that should work (Core2 Duo or i series). Just need to make sure your video card and whatnot match up to the minimums as well (9600 GT or higher). Granted if you have the option of a gaming PC that would be the better choice, but if that isnt an option it should be doable. I will try and report on how well it runs soon as I get the chance for some playtime.
(By the by the specs on my Macbook Pro are 2.8 Ghz Core 2 Duo, 4 G Ram, Nvidia 9600m GT, running Win 7 64x through bootcamp. So mine is one of the older models it is working on.)
