LXer: Samsung's A15 Chromebook Loaded With Ubuntu Is Crazy Fast


Published at LXer:

Google recently launched the Samsung Chromebook that for $249 USD features an 11-inch display, a 16GB SSD, a promise of 6.5-hour battery life, and is backed by a Samsung Exynos 5 SoC.

LXer,

I have been looking at getting the Samsung Chromebook. I've decided to go back to school to study computing @ Arizona State University, and my 17" H-P Notebook is just too big to carry around.

Is there a Linux image out there that I can d/l and burn to SD Card or USB stick?

You should post a proper thread in the forums.

You can write isos to flash media and newer laptops should be able to boot from them. They have to be isos made for USB sticks. For example:
