Want to run Android apps on your Windows based PC?

Asus announced that they will be releasing a new line of Windows-based PC's, laptops, and tablets that will be bundled with Bluestacks software. The software will allow you to run most of Android's best selling games and apps such as Angry Birds Space and Draw Something. It will also give you the ability to sync apps with your Android phone or tablet. The Bluestacks website also has a demo .exe that you can download to your Windows PC. And upon official release of Bluestacks on Asus PC's, Asus will offer free and unlimited Android game and app downloads as an introductory and limited time ofer.I recently found the time to run the demo app and am quite surprised to see how smooth it runs on my old and trusty Toshiba laptop running a dual core 1.6ghz pentium chip. However, I did experience some issues with sound. The sound on Angry Birds Space was a bit choppy. Nonetheless, gaming performance was smooth as I breezed past the first three levels. I also liked the fact that you can access the bluestacks settings menu and use their "CloudSync" option to sync compatible android apps from my phone to my laptop. Other options include custom keyboard controls.  If you'd like to try this demo yourself, you can download the  .exe to your Windows PC from the Bluestacks website.
