Acer C7: Anyone else have one?
I picked an Acer C7 Chromebook knowing I could install ubuntu on it. Other than the firmware giving me a nasty message that I've disabled OS verification it works seemingly perfect so far. Haven't tested bluetooth or video out yet though.
Essentially, for $199 you get:
-Dual Core Intel CPU that while not a speed demon, isn't a slouch.
-1366x768 resolution LCD, way better than the 1024x600 ones in netbooks before it.
To me it might be the perfect ubuntu laptop for the price. Anyone else picked one up?
Wondering if anyone's tried to put grub on it. Right now custom scripts boot into chrome or ubuntu per the developer of Chrubuntu's guide. Wondering if anyone knew why grub wasn't used.
Also wondering if anyone's found a better driver for the trackpad. A little frustrating when right clicking.
