Operating Systems Linux Motherboards

Hey all,

So, I want to build a tablet that will run a standard 32-bit version of Linux.

The reason for this is I need to run my application on a very bright screen to use outdoors. I don't want to spend the time porting all of the code to use on an ARM tablet. The application works flawlessly as is.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a motherboard that would be small (fit in a tablet case) and would be ready to be driven by a desktop version of Linux? I have found high NIT screens and RAm etc etc already.

ubuntu touch is ARM based - a problem. I used the GTK graphics Kit to make this application and i dont know how that will port.
ubuntu touch only fully Supports a couple of googles devices.
none of thse have a high brightness screen.

i just want to run my application as is. Ive seen some really good high intensity screens. I just need a good tablet motherboard. I looked a little bit at the raspberry pi
