The Chromebook is a good piece of hardware for the price. And it's not a laptop but a Linux laptop which you don't just pick up at the local Best Buy. It's a mess putting Linux on a Windows 8 laptop.

I can see how it affects the price and things gets a bit more expensive due to the Windows-license, but how on earth is it "a mess" installing Linux on a laptop which previously had Windows on it?

Especially given all the loopholes and workarounds people have to resort to to actually get Linux running on these locked down so-called "Linux" laptops?

I mean... This article itself is proof that Chromebooks are worse than Windows-laptops, right?
