LXer: HPs huge Chromebook is here, costs $329

Published at LXer:

Like Acer's C7, HP's Chromebook is a lightly modified version of one of its low-end Windows laptops, the HP Pavilion Sleekbook 14-b010us. That laptop includes a Windows license and several upgraded components, but the body and build quality of both should be more or less identical. Despite this similarity, don't expect to be able to buy the Chromebook version and put your own Windows license on itwhile a version of Ubuntu has been made that is compatible with Chromebooks' locked-down bootloaders, installing alternate operating systems on the computers is a non-trivial undertaking.
