Can this be used to play games on emulators or use programs like daemon tools?

The Chromebook is primarily a cloud access tool and works well with the available APPs (including games) in addition to access to the Google Drive for storage or working documents. In terms of downloading content to the computer, that is not the main focus.

No, unless there are emulators available for the ChromeOS.

Only applications available in the Chrome app store can be used on this machine. In this way it is more like a tablet than a PC. The machine can be placed in Developer mode. When this is done there are some out there that have configured it to dual boot both Chrome OS and Umbutu. In Unbutu there are emulators available. As for how to set up the dual boot this I have not done myself. I have a main machine I just remote into when I want to rune a program not available in Chrome.

browser-based games only; emulators are not available. it isn't an Android device like a smartphone (it's a locked-down linux variant), so apps (like daemon tools) won't work.
