Something similar I have done is working on my laptop with the project open in Scrivener and researching on the Dell Duo in tablet mode right next to me. I find it helpful to keep the project in front of me - I'm less likely to go off on a tangent. Something else I like to do with the Duo is collect photos that inspire me or bring to mind scenes for the story, and when I feel bogged down I can reach over and swipe the screen to flip through them.
I do something with two desktops; one for writing (and during NaNoWriMo, keeping a browser window up so I can validate my word count) and one for notes and research. I switch back and forth using a switcher widget in the panel.
