Sure: don't.

Linux support for touch and tablets is not ready for prime-time yet. Don't.

I have done a lot of work with Linux and support for COTA touchscreen
PCs. It's horrible.

If you want a laptop, buy a laptop. If you want a tablet, buy a
tablet. There are decent cheap Android tablets now. I just bought a
£119 Chinese Android 6.5" phablet. It's light, plasticky-feeling, but
it runs Android 5.1, has dual SIM slots plus a microSD slot, a
removable battery, and it's fast and works well. The cheap Chinese
stuff is decent enough now.

But don't expect a desktop Linux distro to handle both roles.

The closest to what you ask right now might be a Chromebook Pixel C,
which can convert, or an Asus Chromebook Flip.

But do not expect to replace the built-in OS.
