Let Android Power Your Netbook
| by Kamakshi S
If you have heard enough about the Android platform, but are wary about investing in an Android-powered device, here is one way you can power up your netbook or laptop with a non-touch version of Android.
UNetbootin will prepare your USB Drive
Once you have decided to take Android on a dry run, you’ll need a USB drive with at least 256 MB of free storage space. It is advisable to back up any data on it so that this becomes a dedicated boot-able device for the Android OS. Next, you need to arrange for the Android X 86 setup files. Go here, and save the “android-x86-1.6-r2.iso” file listed under the Stable Release section. Alternatively, you can use the "android-x86-2.2-generic.iso" file instead from the Stable Release section.Next, mount the ISO ﬁle to create a live boot-able USB drive. Go here and save the Windows version of UNetbootin. Now, you can proceed to turn your USB into a Live Android OS boot source.
Setting up the USB Device
Select the 'Live CD - Run Android-x86 without installation' option
Booting up the System
Customizable intro screen, just like in a regular Android device
Surfing on Android

Any apps you install will be available for the current session only, and you will not ﬁnd them on reboot. Although Android does offer a decent surﬁng experience, it is not recommended that you install the OS on your hard disk.
