    No, sorry. In order to run portal (legally), you'll need the Steam gaming-platform. Which is a system that distributes the updates, game files and maintains customers for Valve games alongside a couple of hundred other game studios.

    It has almost 900 available games, plus a large amount of seperate content like gamemods, demos and trailers.

    There are currently 20 million steam users with a daily concurrent login peak of about 1.8 M.

    The support wiki currently states:

    Quote ( http://supportwiki.steampowered.com/wiki/Using_Ste... ):

    Steam does not currently work on Mac Computers, and there are no plans to support the Mac operating system at this time. There are some Windows emulation tools like VirtualPC available that offer both Windows 2008 and Windows XP modes, but VirtualPC is unable to handle the game requirements.

    Steam will load and download the games onto your drive, but the games will not run.
