    hi guys,
    I want to buy some tablet with Intel celeron N3450 or Pentium N5000.
    I want to use it as dual boot: Windows and Android.
    is it possible?

    is Android supported on one of them or both of them?

    Android, like all mobile operating systems, has to be built for the hardware, i.e. for the specific tablet. There is no generic build that can run on any tablet, so if you just buy a Windows tablet and assume you'll be able to run Android on it natively you will almost certainly be disappointed. Of course you may be able to run Android in an emulator, but that's not what you asked for.

    There are a few dual-boot tablets out there, so it's possibly simplest to start by seeing whether any of those meet your requirements.

    There are already Intel CPU dual-booting Windows and Android tablets available, but they all seem to use Intel Atom processors.

    Look into 'Android-x86' but note it's an independent, unofficial (not tied to Google) project so depending on just what hardware configuration you'll be using, some features may or may not work and such. But it is actively developed and updated so even if there is something not functioning properly now it could be all fixed in the next release.
    The heart of the matter is, when you do a clean install of any operating system there could be issues that pop up that'll test your skill set, but in this instance you'll be running an OS specifically designed for a different architecture so just don't approach this as a seamless, 100% solution.
