    For enterprise and pro user, not need android, because app on google play not much for productivity, but if you want use for entertainment, mobile game and social media, you maybe need it if you not have android phone or iPhone

    Android is not something you'd want on a laptop. The laptop form-factor cannot do much to compensate for the failings of a phone.

    Games and websites are better on a PC anyway.

    Windows is great for entertainment. Browser is better (full browsers, multi-tab, extensions, full html5 support etc), music and video software is better, games are better.

    Social networking is all there, except for things where it needs to be a phone anyway. If you don't want to use a browser, there's apps for Instagram, twitter, facebook, messenger, and more.

    Technically, you can boot some versions of android with windows. But it's kind of a pain switching, especially since you'll only be doing so, at most for a few apps.

    Also the drivers often don't all work. If you find a weird little app you want to run, either run it as a chrome extension (like WhatsApp or tinder), or run bluestacks. But generally you won't find much need.

    Generally speaking, android is inferior, in terms of software quality and power. You wont find much call for running android apps on a windows machine.

    If you were a huge casual gamer, there might be benefit to running both. There are touch games on both platforms you can't get on the other. But you'd have to be very into touch games.

    Because you can run things like tinder and WhatsApp as extensions/desktop versions, and there's UWP apps as well, if you wanted to run some specific non-present app, it would make more sense to emulate than dual boot, because this sort of scenario would be rarely used. It would also be a rare use case, something most people wouldn't do.

    In fact in either case, it would be a rare use case, most people wouldn't want to do.

    I can't possibly see why would you do that except if you need snapchat on your tablet. And even then you can install android emulators if you want it that bad, no need to make a dual boot.

    I'd run something like Bluestacks and that's about it.

    Well you can dual boot with windows and RemixOS (Android for x86 and x64) on a laptop quite well.
    A native OS in most case is better than an emulator (ie. Bluestack), try out the game Summoners war on bluestack and it's a dead lag, run smoothly on Remix though.
    Still RemixOS is not quite finished and will cause some problem with your HDD, but you can play around with it if you really want to.
