My Chromebook

My Google Chromebook By Miller, Michael – 2013

A user guide. I am hoping they will show how to load Ubuntu onto it, but there is not much chance. When I get a look at the book I will update this.

This slim laptop would be great for an ultra-portable Ubuntu machine, with its SSD for quick booting. The Intel based model is the best choice, but it is unfortunately not available here in Canada. The Atom based model is cheap and can run Ubuntu, but cannot run a few useful closed-source packages. There is also an expensive model with a hi-res display that Linus uses, but again: not available.
