Aside from the physical aspect, UAE is pretty much indistinguishable from the real thing for a few years now.
I still prefer to play on my Amiga because of the physical attachment to the thing but if a PC/Mac with UAE running was connected to a CRT monitor you would really have a hard time figuring out whether it is the real thing or not.
