A well built, 13 inch, full hd chromebook run from a 32 gb ssd by a proper Intel CPU with an sd slot for under 500$. How hard can it be

Batterylife is actually good.

And you get the real thing, not the computer that inspired the design of what you are trying to get.
>>
>>43014214
Well look at the chromebooks that are available and choose from their. I would say the Acer C720 because it runs a haswell celeron so it is using the 32 bit architecture.

I think it is the best choice for what your needs are. Alternatively you can get the cheaper model 16gb and scrap that drive and buy a 120gb or so.

What's wrong with that?
>>
>>43014506
This post inspired me to look for a chromebook as I don't want to carry around my T420 all the time anymore. I am currently shopping around. I want to get one with an x32 based processor as the ARM architecture is too new for most applications. Which ones support that high of a res?

>>43014526
or you could you know just use the USB 3.0 that comes standard, toss an old 2.5" drive into an external case and utilize the storage you already have sitting around at high speeds.
>>
>>43014554
For Linux, ARM is great. It's in fact the most developed arch today because of all the embedded/mobile world.
>>
>>43014214
that would be the shittiest laptop ever made
>>
>>43014568
hmm, that is interesting.

I still think that the C720 is the best option, the 32gb is $229.

>>43014398

This isn't 1998 you fucking moron, I'm using amd64 Linux on my C720.

4GB non-touch, the Arch Wiki has an excellent page on configuring keymaps through xbindkeys. For general driver support, use the linux-c720 kernel package from AUR (currently 3.16-RC1), install xf86-input-synaptics and xf86-video-intel for drivers, and use a DE with touchpad configuration management. I'm currently using MATE. Here it is emulating a mainframe.
>>
>>43014799
nice.

I am between the C720 and the Samsung chromebook 2 right now. The Chromebook 2 comes standard with 4gb whereas the C720 runs $350 with 4gb. The issue for me though is the processor. Will the Exynos 5 Octa 5420 clocked at 1.9 run as good as the Celeron 2955U 1.4 GHz ?

get an x series thinkpad you pleb

also, id want proper cooling, a decent amount of battery life, a trackpoint, a proper keyboard with decent key travel, thinkpad style status lights, hardware switch to disable networking, and thinkpad aesthetics

basically i want an x61 tablet with less ugly buttons on the front, modern hardware, and a better screen

WHAT WHY DONT YOU JUST LIKE HAVING AN ALUMINIUM CASE INSTEAD ALL THAT?

ARE YOU STOOPID?
>>
>>43014858
Holy shit no. Exynos chips are fucking HORRIBLE with GNU/Linux because of half-baked unaccelerated GPU driver support, ALSA problems, etc. It's like a time warp back to x86 Linux in 2003. The C720 4GB is, bar none, the best Chromebook for GNU/Linux. It's not even close.

The downside is you have to physically remove a write-protect screw, use ChromeOS dev mode briefly to set some BIOS flags to let you bypass the ChromeOS loader and boot straight to SeaBIOS, and when you remove the write protect screw it sets the RTC to the maximum date value so the initial slew back takes minutes.

Pick one.

funnily enough, my mother tried using my x61t the other day, she couldnt figure out how to work the trackpoint properly

>>43014988
that's what I thought. I am just kind of bummed that the Acer C720 with 4gb is $350 and the Samsung Chromebook 2 is $300 flat and has a better aesthetic look and build quality. I am not a macfag who loves
> muh aluminum
or anything as I have the based T420 but I can't say that the Chromebook 2 doesn't look better. I will buy a C720, thank you for your input.

1. I want fucking native apps on Chrome OS.
Fuck give me Android apps, give me something more than fucking javascript shit.
2. Larger storage

Those two and Microsoft is in for a lot of asshurt, like big black nigger cock asshurt.

>>43014998
hardware backdoors are nearly impossible to prevent unless you build your own hardware, and that's really just kind of silly

such is life in 21st century capitalist merika
>>
>>43015068
absolutely, I think that if you take into account that everything is going to a network based model that a lack of on board storage would be able to be an adequate compromise if you were able to call back to your home machine for processing resources as well as storage.

You need to be a fucking autist to like the thinkpad look

no, i just like understated aesthetics

i also like the look of that one black chromebook, just a shame it was all looks and no substance

>$ after the number
GAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Did you even go to school?

...sorry, that always gets to me. Like people that say "$50 dollars". Or worse, "50$ dollars".

That hurt to type.
>>
>>43016604
You put the dollar sign after the number in French, at least theres no commas instead of points for decimals around here.
>>
>>43016604
The latter is understandable. $ is also used for pesos. The $ sign was coined (lel) in New Spain.
>>
>>43016999
That's because it was originally a pseudo-ideograph meant to represent pressed silver dolares.

>>43016604
easy mistake to make if you're not murrican and aren't thinking too hard about it

>for under 500$
fuck you /g/ fags with your obsession with cheap things. why would anyone cater to you when you want something good for cheap?

buy used, use shitty things or pay more. simple as that.
>>
>>43015549
you didn't get it, it is not "made ugly on purpose" it is made in the shape/form that best fits the purpose. The purpose of a Thinkpad isn't too look beautiful or anything, it is supposed to do work. I have used a mac book pro for a long time and always had problems with the sharp edge on the front cutting into my wrists when writing. It may look good, but it is terrible to do work.
>>
>>43017075
There are business laptops that look good you know (no, macbooks aren't for work)
>>
>>43017300
show me an example
>>
>>43017075
> it is not "made ugly on purpose" it is made in the shape/form that best fits the purpose
Nah. Its made to look like a thinkpad because its a brand. They do (and especially did) design them to be nice to use, of course, that is/was one of their "things".

>It may look good, but it is terrible to do work.
I dunno, I've used two macbook pros as my nearly only machines for 2-3 years and never felt like that. I mean I can imagine that someone types so that it is a problem, I guess, but...it seems like a pretty tiny problem that most people won't have. Like how big hands do you need to have for your wrists to stay on the edge in a way that hurts?
>>
>>43014214
so, basically, you want a samsung chromebook 2 with an intel processor and a bigger ssd
>>
>>43017437
It has probably nothing to do with my hands but more with my posture. I have my arms lower than the keyboard. Still its a sharp edge at a place where people might have their hands/arms
>>
>>43017454
Yes but I doubt they would drop their own cpu
