Will SWTOR be ported to Mac, or is the number of Mac users too low?
SWTOR devs have stated that they are not going to be doing anything with the mac. Give boot camp a try.
There will be no port. I don't think it's an issue of "the number of mac users" however, it's just that developing a game concurrently for Mac and PC is kind of like learning to fly a plane and a race car at the same time. They're both vehicles with which you can get from point A to point B, but they are drastically different in terms of how they work and how they're controlled.
That's a kind of investment that usually does not pay for itself with a game like an MMO.
Probably not. Unlike a conventional game MMOs are constantly changing. This means that in addition to porting the game, every single patch would also need to be ported, in addition to dealing with Mac specific bugs.
SWTOR currently runs on HeroEngine, which doesn't support Macs. However they're planning to roll out Mac support in Q1 2012. With the engine platform supporting Macs, if Bioware really wants to, I think it's a huge possibility.
That said, Boot Camp is reportedly are working very well and Parallels is pretty competitive too!

It is highly unlikely, as the previous poster stated. This is precisely why bootcamp exists. It is also one of the many many reasons that I tell everyone that I know to avoid buying macs whenever possible.
