Acer 11.6" Touchscreen Convertible Chromebook

Be aware that this Acer laptop, along with the Lenovo, are Chrome OS. The first sentence of both descriptions state, “OS will not receive any updates.”

Got one from some guy who put Ubuntu on it using something called “Crouton” to do it. Works well.


I think, for the price, this might be good way for somebody to experiment with loading a lite version of Linux and playing around with it. No idea on how long the battery life is, but it might be a good device to take on a commercial plane and watch movies, check email etc.

I’d do it myself, but my significant other considers purchases like this to be “Magic Beans” and will result in chastising for purchasing more Woot stuff.
