    I was thinking about getting a good android tablet, but they are very expensive,, so I was thinking of doing something to save some money. Basically, here's what I'm thinking -

    1) Buy an HP Touchsmart TX2 12.1-Inch Notebook computer (it has a touchscreen that can rotate above the keyboard)

    2) Boot Cyanogenmod or some other form of an android operating system to dual boot with windows

    3) Decide whether to boot with android or windows each time I turn on the computer.

    The only immediate problem I can see is that there would be no accelerometer. I have seen guides that show how to boot android onto a windows computer, but I haven't tried it myself.

    Does anyone see a problem with this setup?

    Have you checked this forum out, I think this may do what you are looking for.

    BlueStacks Devices - Android Forums

    Also, have you checked out the Nexus 7. I have that for a tablet and really enjoy it, though I see you are looking for a larger screen.

    Anyway, I hope this helps.:)
