The MSP432 seems pretty neat, but I would also check out the STM32 line, which has a lot more features. You can get one of their "discovery boards" pretty cheap: STM32 Discovery Boards The one I have used (STM32F429 Discovery Board) has a 168MHz ARM, 2MB Flash, 256k internal RAM with 64-Mbit SDRAM on the board, and a 2.4" LCD. It would be a very good base to work off of. It also has a second USB port that you can set to use as a virtual COM port, which really simplifies communicating with a PC. There is also a "mass storage" option, though I haven't used it. You may be able to set up drag and drop for files pretty easily with it.

One of the main things to consider is memory management. Does the C code for any of these emulators make calls to malloc? If so, you'll have to implement a dynamic memory system, since there is no magic working behind the scenes on an embedded processor like there is on a Windows system.
