Just let him find out the hard way. For some stuff it will be 'ok'. For most games that mame has it will be an exercise in frustration due to the latency. I had typed it all out what the different ones were but then blew away the post. I would say that sort of tech would easily lead to frames dropped and at least 2-6 frames of latency. For something like a point and click game you would never really notice it. For a twitchy game like SMB you are going to get your ass kicked.
