I am a Mac User but I have an old Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop with Pentium III, 1.1Ghz and 512 MB Ram. I am taking an elearning design class and need to trial Captivate which I can't on my Mac. From looking at the system requirements, it appears that the Captivate trial download requires Pentium 4 to run. Am I out of luck and stuck with the school's computer lab to play with Captivate and to build a sample elearning class? When will Captivate be available on a Mac? The rumor is at the end of the year = is this true?
Is your Mac Intel based? If so, you could run Parallels in order to use Captivate.
As to when it will become available, only Adobe can say for sure. Indeed I fully expect it to be released by the end of the year. Actually, my own guess is that it will be sooner than that. I'm guessing that you will see it within the next three months.

I don't want to go to the expense of buying parallels, then a windows os and then have slow running mac, just to play with captivate. Would be great if it came out in mac in a few months. I do see that I can run a trial of articulate on my current Dell laptop so I'll download that for now. Thanks for responding.
