Any idea of how good or bad this would run on an early 2012 high-end MacBook?

MacBook or MacBook Pro? MacBook it probably wouldn't run if it only has a Intel GMA 950 "GPU".

2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 with 4 gigs of ram and a Radeon 6750M with 512 MB.

I tried googling and couldn't find many good answers about how good the Mac version was. (As opposed to a boot camp version)

Edit: I would rather die than have integrated graphics!

The Mac client is using Cider, I believe, so if you already have Boot Camp setup you'll get better performance on Windows.

I don't have boot camp set up and have little desire to. Also I have no idea what Cider is, besides a delicious drink.

It's a fork of the Wine compatibility layer. So all the graphics calls are going through a translation layer.
