    I don't think there is. Bluestacks does require some ram

    You can also try to install Android via Virtual Box...It might just work but it will still be slow.
    How old is your laptop/pc? You might be able to upgrade its RAM

    Probably not, Android itself needs a lot of RAM nowadays, and so do the apps. BlueStacks basically runs an Android layer on top of Windows, so it has the same drawbacks as Android.
    Android 2.x runs okay on 256 MB RAM but anything newer will probably struggle to run at all on that little ram, and that's not even counting the apps. I don't think there is a BlueStacks version based on Android 2.x and even if there was, it would be old and probably not very good.
    You can run Android 2.x in an emulator, that should somewhat work. If you install the Android SDK there's an emulator included which you could use, and there might be prepackaged images for VirtualBox or qemu or similar.

    Use genymotion, it runs fine on 300mb (Pretty sure its the default ram set in the virtual machines). Bluestacks sucks...
