Hi there 

I run Polyboard on a mac laptop via parallels. Its fairly easy to set up and works perfectly. The parallels software is well worth the 

investment as I now run a couple of other pieces of software that are not available on the mac platform. Its well priced for what it does.

If you need any help then let me know but basically you only need bootcamp if you want to run windows in native form…i.e to boot up your mac in windows platform.(native of the mac os)

I don’t do this…. I just run windows as emulation software. i.e (parallels or vmware) with a copy of windows installed. i find I can easily go between polyboard on windows and the far superior operating system of the mac laugh so you get the best of both worlds.

I find windows 7 works fine. Although I haven’t tried other versions.
