    Can anyone tell me where I might buy an Android Laptop. Only Android Tablets seem to be available. I do have a nice little Google Asus 7 inch Android.

    There isn't any. You could just get a keyboard for your tablet and it will end up the same anyway. Unless you mean something like the ASUS Transformer, which isn't an Android laptop technically.

    Thanks as rather suspected. Is it perhaps because no Android is capable of running properly on a laptop or PC? I bought a CD with an Android supposed to work on a PC. But though I can run Android in RAM I never managed to install it on any PC.

    Android was never designed to work with PC architecture. It doesn't have the necessary components to run PC devices. You can run Android on a PC as a shell, but not as a primary OS. Besides, it's capabilities are far less than one can do with a full Windows/Mac/Linux PC grade OS can do anyway.

    Thanks again. However I was very pleased after trying several FTP Apps from Google to access my site without success, I finally logged in using TURBO client with my tablet.

    There are Android laptops available.

    This is not PC architecture, it's basically a cheapo Android tablet made into a laptop form factor with a keyboard and track-pad. And frankly most of them are cheapo, and can be rather crummy. Rather like cheapo tablets, phones and Kodi boxes from China.

    If you just want a basic Internet laptop that isn't Windows, there's Google Chromebooks.
