#1 YouWave

Unlike Bluestacks; YouWave is a good alternative for you. It works easily and put less load it put on your system as compared to bluestacks. Installation was smooth.
But unfortunate it's not free. There is a 10 days trial version and sadly you need to pay $19.99 for it's full version.

I won’t suggest you to buy it for personal purposes. But if you don’t have access to your Android for few day then go for its trial version.

When you are ready to pay, need basic features and good results, you should have a look into YouWave Emulator as well.
