Installing Android on PC was a dream a few years ago. However, there are many that still wants to install and run the latest version of Android on their PC. Besides, Android as an OS for PC is especially good for the old laptops. I had an Acer AO Happy series laptop powered by an Intel Atom Processor (Single Core 1.8GHz) bought in 2010. It struggled to run Windows 7 or a Linux version. Therefore, It was discarded a few years back but then recently I decided to make it usable again. How? By installing the fresh & stable Android OS.
