I sooooo want one.....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0IbMDxYjfo

Just imagine ArchBang running on a Chromebook.....

Have used an ipad for past couple of years and for the most part I would not be without it, thing is for youtube, listening too music, browsing it is fine. Trying to try on one is a real pain, ok I could use an external keyboard but who wants to lug that around. To me it is the same as using a laptop. So why not buy a cheap light laptop enter Chromebook.

When I first read reviews I was unimpressed and most of the cloud stuff while interesting (considered cool) kind of like the idea of being able to use it even offline. Storage too might be an issue but you can get around that by carrying a large (and they are getting larger not in size but storage) usb stick. How much information do you want to carry around with you that you are prepared too lose?

Try using Markdown or a code editor on a tablet!

Re: I sooooo want one.....

Two friends of mine bought this http://www.diskidee.be/2015/01/23/windo … ldi/37425/  300 euro
One liked it so much, that seeing the other one use it made the other one also keen on buying onetoo and she did..
I helped them with installing some applications on both . I liked it too.
Last month it was even for 200 euro available, probably in small quantities
Probably has much better specs than  a chromebook that always is a kind of wilfully disabled laptop.

Did you / they installed linux / archbang on the Medion laptop?

BTW some chromebooks have much beter specs, though not that cheap. And most of the time you can install ArchBang.
