List of classic MacOS Emulators

Before the current OS for Apple systems (MacOS X), there were earliest OS versions that were simply know as MacOS. MacOS and MacOS X are not that compatible, so if you need to run old MacOS programs or files then you need an MacOS emulator.


This is an extensive list of my known Macintosh system emulators:

Mini vMac

The most classic, and also the one that supports MacOS earliest versions (1.1-7.5.5). It emulates a black and white Motorola 68K processor based Mac Plus.



The most modern. Runs MacOS 7.5.2-9.0.4, emulates a Power PC based Macintosh.


Basilisk II

It lays in the middle of the previous two. Runs MacOS 7.x-8.1, emulates later color Motorola 68k based Macs.



Emulator of Apple II series.


Virtual ][

Apple II emulator. Less popular than the others.



Apple II emulator. Less known that the others.
