    Default Skyrim on a Macbook Air?

    Hey GITP

    I recently purchased a mid 2013 Macbook Air from Apple, and I wanna know if there is anyway I can play Skryim on it, ASIDE from Bootcamp.

    Specs:

    Processor: 1.3 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory/RAM:8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    Graphics:Intel HD Graphics 5000 1024 MB

    Do you any of you tech people out there know how I can get Skryim on here?

    Notes:
    I have Skyrim purchased on Steam.
    I would prefer this to be simple.
    I will NOT do anything illegal.
    As noted above, I do not want "Bootcamp" as an answer, rather something else I can do to run it on my mac.

    Thanks

    Wine claims to support Skyrim and wine can be run on a Mac. I can't comment as to whether it will run or how well, but Bootcamp is probably easier.
    If you like what I have to say, please check out my GMing Blog where I discuss writing and roleplaying in greater depth.

    WINE, a Windows compatibility layer.

    Skyrim's WINE database entry makes it look very promising: two Silvers, three Golds, and a Platinum.

    I have CrossOver, but I got that AFTER I started playing Skyrim on Bootcamp, and since I didn't want to lose my save files, I never tried it. It claims to support it, though, so you can try it out.

    I do not know about compatibility with modding.

    CrossOver is a commercial fork of Wine.

    I'm not sure how it differs.

    It's a heck of a lot easier to use, I can tell you that much.
