types of tablets that can run Ubuntu Desktop
Lately you can see all kinds of laptop/tablet/pc hybrids: Laptop convertibles, Tablet PCs, Tablets. Also, they run either ARM, Atom or full Core i3/5/7 processors. Some use GRUB, others use EUFI.
I was wondering on which of these can I install Ubuntu Desktop edition (currently 14.04 LTS). I'd like to be able to:
- Boot up from the USB drive (probably some keyboard shortcut)
- Install Ubuntu with the regular image
- Touch support
- Optionally recognize tablet keys and orientation
I'd like to know which architectures (Core/Atom/ARM) and bootloaders (GRUB/EUFI) support Ubuntu Desktop.
Can I install Ubuntu Desktop on any tablet, as long as it runs Core i3/5/7, for eg.?
