Want a chromebook but already have a laptop?

Was in the Google store in London over the weekend. Basically they were trying to sell me a chromebook....

Although tempted by the fresh new hardware in pretty colours decided I would resist. On my return home started looking at reviews, positives, negatives then thought can you not install it on a laptop you already own?

My search found this

http://chromixium.org

I watched the video, put it on a usb stick and booted, wow... Best part it is openbox under the hood

So you can carry it on a live usb, install to hard drive. Unlike chromebook you are not tied to the net to access your files (installed).

Wonder if I can make it arch based :-)
