    I am planing on purchasing a Macbook and I realize they aren't big gaming machines but I love playing emulators so I was wondering if there are any suggestions on a reasonably priced USB Controller? Also does anyone know any good emulators for mac?

    I have the Logitech Wireless Rumblepad II ($40). It is wireless with a USB dongle and it is great.

    Two good emulators for SNES and NES are:
    SNES9X
    Nestopia

    personally I think the 360 controller is a great game controller for a PC. I used that for my gamepad before I even got my own 360

    You cand get USB adapters for actual SNES controllers, and I think N64 as well. Here's the SNES ones, http://www.retrousb.com/, not 100% on the N64.

    I agree, just go out and buy a wired xbox360 controller, it is the best gamepad out there and relatively inexpensive

    They do, the driver that supports the wired 360 controllers also supports the wireless dongle.

    You do realise this thread's over a year old? :rolleyes:
    It's probably not a good idea to post your phone number up on a public forum either.
