I remember a fair while back trying to do silly thing like run a Speccy emulator on an Amiga emulator on my laptop, just to see if would all work.

It kind of did, but I wouldn't recommend it for regular use... 8)

I use my beautiful Mac for emulation. Snes9X and Hatari get the most usage at the moment. I'm still waiting for a working N64 emulator for OSX...

PC mostly for MAME and SNES emu but also have Namco and Atari 5 in 1 TV games which I play Pacman and Missile Command on. Going to build a new media PC for the lounge soon and will load it with many more emulators and actually get round to getting an arcade stick.

Now it's mainly my XBOX. My PC is running Linux which I'm finding a bit of a pain to find decent emulators for.

I do play some mame stuff on the PC.

I've tried a couple of emulators on the GBA but mainly found them to be a pain to get going properly, although the Spectrum emulator isn't too bad.
