This review is from: Acer C720p-2625 11.6" Touchscreen ChromeBook Intel Celeron 2955U Dual-core 1.40 GHz 4 GB RAM, 16 GB SSD, Chrome OS (Certified Refurbished) (Personal Computers)
I love this. It is a speedy little piece of technology. I've had it for a couple weeks now. I've had no issues.

Pros: Lightweight, sharp images, touch screen is awesome, and very fast (compared to my laptop I have)

Cons: The only thing that I am kind of bummed about is that it is not one of the chromebook that you can use the google play store with by changing a setting on the chromebook.

I was a bit unsure about getting a chromebook. I decided to get one because I read I could run linux off of it relatively easily and wanted a small machine to easily do some school work on for days I don't feel like moving around my larger laptop.

I think the worst part about this purchase is I now feel guilty for the lack of use my old laptop gets--even when sitting at home. The chromebook is small, easy to type on and move, boots quickly, and holds a charge well. I still have to use my other laptop for any gaming and I do usually notice the chromebook having slight issues when I have 5+ intensive tabs open. (Tumblr uses a lot of resources.) Overall, if you mostly use your computer to browse the internet this chromebook does it well.

This machine, with its capable 2-core Haswell processor, is among the best-regarded for Linux usage. I chose to set it up for dual-boot using the chrx framework (search for chrx dot org) and selected the Chromebook-optimized GalliumOS distro to install. All went smoothly.

I am now using it with several external USB3 disks (via a powered hub) via the minio (minio dot io) framework and a USB3-to-Ethernet dongle to back up my several home Mac and Windows machines running Arq clients. If that all sounds like good geeky fun, it is!

Using this refurb Chromebook was cheaper and certainly more capable than a Raspberry Pi or something of the sort, once you add monitor, keyboard, power supply etc etc to the 'Pi. And it's certainly cheaper than a proper Synology NAS.

Running my miniature Amazon-S3-workalike, CPU utilization is typically <5% and the RAM footprint is <15MB. Impressive.
