Is it possible to install Android OS on an ordinary laptop PC and work?

Hi,

    Can Android OS be easily installed on an ordinary laptop PC and work fine? Or is there a lot of futzing around to pull it off easily? Or does the laptop have to have a touch screen monitor for input in working with Android?

Thank you

You can do this using an emulator. I never used one though. A touchscreen isn't required as the mouse and keyboard are used.

Somebody at BC who has experience with these may prefer one out of the list. Hopefully somebody else will comment.

Not that I've done it, but it appears it can be done natively.  Start reading here:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Install+Android+on+PC
