    Sporting Android (Ice Cream Sandwich) this Acer All-In-One has a 21" touchscreen with dual-core ARM processor and 8 Gig hard drive for $309.00

    Acer Ti OMAP 4430

    Not a bad price for a 21" touchscreen.

    Here are some ARM based distros:

    Ubuntu ARM
    Slackware ARM
    Fedora ARM

    CPU and GPU wise it'll be in the same league as the BlackBerry Playbook (Non 4G), Samsung Galaxy S II, Amazon Kindle Fire. That's because they all use the OMAP 4430...

    But do they have a 21" touchscreen?
    How awesome is that? I can't believe that Android OS even scales that big, unless its a low resolution...
    Can Android do 1920x1080?

    Android is based on Linux, hypothetically it can work with any display.

    Ooh, me likes it!
    I just thought it was a decent price for a large touchscreen and computer.

    There was another one for $397 or so
    It wasn't a touchscreen, but it had a Pentium.
    Linux could easily be installed on it.

    Well, Google's Nexus 10 has a display that's 2560×1600 pixels, which is somewhat higher than 1920x1080!

    No WAY! How can a 10" tablet have a resolution that high?
    Wow, just wow!
    Imagine having pixels that small on a 21" monitor! The resolution would be 4 times higher

    Although with a 21" monitor at the normal distance you have, you'd not need such a high resolution unless you held it the same distance as a phone away!

    Then again, a touchscreen can only be arms length away.
