Hello

I'm trying to find out how to run old games on my mac, I thought of maybe using an emulator to allow for mac Classic and PowerPc options on my macbook air.

I don't really know what an emulator is or how it works, this is my first mac so I'm having trouble getting it to work the way I want it to.

Is it possible to run a mac emulator of an older version of a mac, on a mac 10.7.4?
QUOTE Thanks

You didn't really say how old these games are. They could be from 2010, 2005, 2000, 1995, 1990, 1985, etc. As you can see...being a bit more specific can be important.

The answer you get depends on the answer you give.
