I have a pretty killer rig at home that I enjoy Arma2 when I'm at home.
Recently I'm traveling more and more for work and would love to have A2:OA
on my mac book pro, its a summer 2011 model so hardware shouldn't be an issue at all.

I realize I could install bootcamp but I'd rather not have to do that.
I was hoping somebody knew about a port or a wineskin type deal. Maybe even some emulator
that's working well (VMWare etc.).

My guess is that some kind of wineskin based solution is probably the best but I'm no expert.
Any thoughts or experience?

I'm playing Arma 2 and OA on my MBP right now through bootcamp, if you don't use bootcamp you'd have to use something like parallels, and using it through one of those you won't get as much performance as running it natively on bootcamp. This is especially a problem for me because I have the MBP 2011 but it only has Intel HD 3000. I can just barely run the game on low settings, but its playable. If I tried it through Parallels I doubt it would be playable at all. What are your specs btw? And if they're the same as mine I'd recommend bootcamp, but Win 7 is very expensive I know.
