    Would the Asus X555QA 15.6" HD Notebook AMD Quad-Core A12-9720P be sufficient for android development using the Android Studio SDK? My biggest concern is whether or not it supports virtualization. My current laptop specs are:

    System Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
    System Model: Satellite C55Dt-A
    System Type: x64-based PC
    Processor(s): 1 Processor(s) Installed.
    [01]: AMD64 Family 22 Model 0 Stepping 1 AuthenticAMD
    ~2000 Mhz
    BIOS Version: Insyde Corp. 1.80, 1/27/2014
    Hyper-V Requirements: VM Monitor Mode Extensions: Yes
    Virtualization Enabled In Firmware: Yes
    Second Level Address Translation: Yes
    Data Execution Prevention Available: Yes

    According to my Internet research, I need to disable Hyper-V. I am unable to do so.

    Turn Windows features on or off does not have a Hyper-V Manager.

    I tried to disable Hyper-V by using the elevated command prompt. I'm about ready to throw in the towel and buy a new laptop.

    Before you condemn the laptop, maybe try it with Linux instead of Windows?

    Good suggestion, but I don't have time to learn Linux right now. Thanks for replying!

    If your PC does not support virtualization, you can still try your apps by programming them directly on a phone (with a USB cable).
    My PC does not support virtualization, and this is how I do.
    About the OS, I guess Android Studio works well on the different OSes. I personnally use Linux Mint.

    No need to actually learn. Just install something like Ubuntu, then install Android Studio.
