Confused on how to play on Mac.

When I go to buy the game, there isn't an option to click the Mac version.

When I buy it does it just KNOW I'm on a Mac?

Any clarification would be nice. I finally want to start playing this game after following its news for so dang long.

Hi, here are the instructions on downloading I found at the minecraft website:

http://www.minecraft.net/download.jsp

The relevant part of the page says:
=
Mac OSX:
Download Minecraft.zip, extract the Minecraft app, then run it.

The Minecraft.zip part of the above is a link.

Still confused.

If I go to buy the game...do I get the necessary files needed for me to play on my Mac?

Somebody bought me a game code so how I did this is slightly different from how you'll do this, but from my recollection and what I think is the case, you pay for the game and then you download whatever version is appropriate for you. From what I remember, this isn't a case of paying for one version or the other when you pay for it. You'll pay for the game and then download it from whatever link is appropriate for you in a later step.
