Android-x86 Laptop and Netbook
The current Android-x86 Project launch takes us a step very close to making use of the Android operating system on a laptop or desktop PC.
I have compiled an Android x86 system (Lollipop 5.0.2), which can run live (from CD) or be installed on almost all laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer (Aspire), HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Ausus laptops.
Have you ever installed Ubuntu, Fedora or any other Linux based operating system alongside windows. At-least Tried? No! No worries here is a step-by-step guide on “How to Install and Run Android 4.4 KitKat alongside Windows ?” and this is way simple than the above operating systems because it is a mobile operating system and doesn’t require any sort of drivers and installations. Just install and run.
A “Console OS” Kickstarter project is building an Android 4.4 fork for Intel CPUs on everything from PCs to tablets, complete with a dual-boot option. Intel is hoping to spur a new wave of dual-boot Android/Windows 2-and-1s and tablets with its Atom Z3000 and upcoming, newly announced Core M processors. So far, however, Android has yet to make much of dent in the PC market, either as a standalone or dual-boot OS.
Most Android devices run on some variant of ARM architecture, but Intel’s recent efforts have been focusing on the Android on Intel project, which aims to change all that.
As you are undoubtedly aware, the vast majority of Android devices run on some variant of the ARM architecture. Despite this, Intel has been hard at work on the Android on Intel project. Intel’s efforts have resulted in the release of Android 4.4.2, which can be installed now on the Dell XPS12 and Intel NUC.
Summary: Chrome and Android haven’t merged but you can actually run Android on a Chromebook if you know where to look. We share the details on that and discuss Samsung’s performance promises for the new Chromebook 2.
Intel is now interested in pushing “Dual OS” PCs — devices with both Windows 8 and Android on them. But you don’t have to buy a new PC to do this — you can run Android apps and even the Android operating system on your current PC.
The Android 4.3 AOSP code has been available since last week, and as usual the community immediately set to work making it run on a variety of devices. Today’s installment: an Acer laptop running an AMD Brazos C-50 processor.
Google’s Android operating system may designed for low-power devices with touchscreens including smartphones and tablets. But that doesn’t mean you can’t run it on a laptop or desktop computer.
Review of the latest build of android x86 on the Dell Mini 9!
Recently Intel CEO Paul Otellini said he sees a future where you can buy an ultrathin notebook featuring an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor for as little as $200. Now CNET has a few more details about Intel’s vision for the future of cheap notebooks, and that vision includes Google Android.
The Chromebook Pixel is the best Chrome OS laptop money can buy — but at $1299 and up you'll need a fair bit of money to buy one. That's a lot of money to spend on a laptop that runs a browser-based operating system, but it turns out the Pixel isn't limited to just running Chrome OS.
Andriod-x86 is an unofficial project to port Google's Android operating system to run on devices with x86 processors... like the ones made by Intel and AMD. In other words, it lets you run Android on your laptop or desktop PC.
Summary: My hopes for official Android support on the Chromebook Pixel are just that for now: Hopes. You can install and Android 4.2 on the Pixel, or most other laptops, however, without trashing your computer's native operating system.
