    My son went off to Uni a few weeks ago with a Windows 7 laptop for serious work and gaming and an ASUS Chromebook Flip for daytime use (out and about) to which, I was quite surprised to find, he took an almost immediate liking. I played with it for a while before handing it over to him “powerwashed” and went out and bought one for myself. Absolutely LOVE it. The touch screen makes a huge difference in usabilty, and I get around 11 or 12 hours use from the battery. Amazingly useful and a joy to behold 🙂

    I would not even consider putting Linux on it. Why spoil something that is as near perfect as it’s possible to be? A place for everything and everything in its place. (who said that?)

    I know this isn’t a chromebook podcast but I bought a lenovo x131e chromebook and did crouton for while but this also supports 8gb of ram and has a extra laptop size hard drive. Which I put a 120 gb ssd and was able to mount that for my chroot environment. The only thing that really bugs me is the 11.6 screen size, made it hard to do actual work. I am considering blowing away the chromeos and putting a full dist on the 16gb and partitioning up the 120gb ssd for the home. Like the podcast even when it does get a bit side tracked
