Im so frustrated about now. I dont need an android emulator for GAMING for Pete sake! Im not into gaming, but need a lightweight emulator to be able to use my phone apps (that have nothing to do with gaming) when my phone is in repair or lost. ALL of the emulators Ive tried are so heavy and bloated with graphics and keyboard software, that none of them will run on my notebook. Bluestacks used to but not anymore. Doesnt anyone offer an emulator that will work for NONGAMING issues?
Could you post your system model or specifications?
I use BlueStacks and it does tax your system resources.
You could try Nox App Player, which allows to specify the CPU and RAM usage (settings option).
They are all system hoggers.
