    Anyone hear of the aura slate? Would they fit my purposes?

    I was searching the web for a tablet that is relativity cheap and that i could mess with. I came accros the auraslate and im wondering if anyone has this and if it would fit me needs.

    Basicly what i want to do is remove the current os and put the full ubuntu os on it and use it as a regular desktop. I want to be able to stream movies and play games, and all that stuff.

    Would the aura slate work for that? if not, what would?

    What are the technical specifications? Is there a Ubuntu image that will run on that hardware?
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    It's not on the list of devices that currently run Ubuntu Touch...
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Device...om_cdimage.u.c

    Also the specs are lower than the official system requirements...
    http://www.ubuntu.com/tablet/operators-and-oems

    Also Cyanogenmod hasn't been ported to the Auraslate, which makes it unlikely that Ubuntu Touch will be either.


    Currently the only officially supported devices are the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 so I would recommend getting one of those if you want to run Ubuntu Touch in its current state of development.
