    Like perhaps with an emulator or something? I understand it might be tricky because some games involve tilting, etc, but there are some basic informational apps that would be useful. Any tips or tricks or is this impossible?

    The apps are compiled for a different processor than that used in the MacBooks. To run on the MBP you would need the developer tools plus the source code.

    Yeah, there is the emulator, but that is only for the SDK, which means what you need the source code to the app you want to run. Pretty much that means it's only for apps you make yourself.
