Lightbulb [Q] Build a DIY android OUYA-like console from a laptop

Would it not be possible to create an android console from a laptop or similar piece of hardware. I'm thinking you would install android x86 on it and plug in some usb controllers. i have already tried this to some extent in virtual box and on an old laptop. The problem would come when you tried to run and arm based apps or games on it. Though there is a version of android x86 that has arm emulation, I could not get any fps games working as most of them would crash upon launching. And the one I did get working lagged in the main menu and the screen just went white when the campaign was launched. Does anyone have any ideas on this?
