Anyone have any first-hand experience playing this on an 11" MacBook Air and/or Intel HD Graphics 3000? I'm sure it will run fine, just curious if anyone has actually played it on that hardware?

I've heard that the 'enhanced' edition actually has some problems (like the path finding is bad, for example). Can anyone confirm or debunk this? Thank you!

Ive just bought it via the Mac App Store. I hope this version does not have Beamdogs DRM Crap put on it. Will have a go at it later.

Edit:

All fine, works like a charm and without any activation needed.

Is the pathfinding worse? My recollection is that it just wasn't better, and the original was pretty bad. I read something where it was apparently architecturally-coupled to cutscene/script behavior, so any changes in the pathfinding AI broke a bunch of stuff.

I play lots of games, especially async ones. You can add me on GC: geoelectric

I just noticed the "Buy" button in the Mac App Store shows "Update", but when I go to the updates section of the Mac App Store, it shows no updates available. Anyone else see this?
