    Yes there is an emulator being worked on by the name of Citra.

    http://citra-emu.org/

    A this stage however it's mostly useful as a development tool, there isn't anything that can play commercial games to any great degree.

    You'd likely need a better computer even when the emulator reaches the point of being useful for your purposes. A 3ds might be cheaper.

    Maybe but main thing is if there is a emulator for that in the first place.
    Working on a little project☺

    Getting your hands on citra will likely never happen, and forget about running past 30fps. If you want to stream 3ds games, buy a 3ds with a built in capture card. If you want to get 3ds games for free, either...
    A: get a sky3ds cartridge $200
    B: buy the fucking game
    C: wait for an improbable kernel exploit
    D: sell your soul for a 4.5 3ds and run rxtools on it.

    If he buys a 4.5 3ds wouldn't be better for him to get a Gateway?

    Yea, and run it through the browser. Either way, free stuff.
