    You can download the SDK for Android and run apps in there, but that's
    probably not what you're after since that's mainly meant for development
    and the last time I tried it the process was notably not-snappy.

    Which apps are you after? Perhaps there are native alternatives.

    There is a version of eclipse that does emulation but it is very slow. You need to remember that Android runs on ARM processors not Intel family so you have to emulate a whole different processor.

    Do a search on "AndroVM" - the project's name has changed, but that'll
    get you on the right track. The performance isn't bad in my experience,
    but it's not an "emulator" - it's an actual x86 VM.
