That's contrary to the whole point of a thin client. Memory is not the issue, the problem is that it probably won't have anywhere near the required CPU power to run most games.

Maybe it could work if you ran some really old version of MAME, but by doing that you'd miss out on a lot of features, more accurate emulation, it's difficult to find the old ROM sets etc.
