    If I run a emulator for a GBA,SNES,PSX,ect will the Pro run the games or will I have the same problem that fallout1-2, and starcraft have. the 8 bit ect, and 256 color problem? Also how does the Pro preform on newer games say the eumlation of a Ps2, or even a Xbox 360?

    there is no xbox 360 or ps2 emulator for mac.For Others www.Bannister.org covers pretty much the entire mac emulation abilities. For PSX, the universal version of pcsx is hard to find.

    I know it runs GBA and N64 emulators great. Even my PowerBook could run those. I personally haven't tried any of the other systems you've mentioned though.

    PSX emulation is good as well. There a few issues with some of the newer games and some obvious ones with the Final Fantasy games, but most can be fixed.
