What do you think about this video?

Brian Fagioli: Ubuntu running on the Acer C720 -- a $249 Haswell Linux laptop...run, do not walk to your local Best Buy!!!

Matthew Moore: I don't understand why people do this. I own a chromebook, and i also develop a Linux DIstro and help maintain 3 others. Chromebooks are not optimized for this, not even close. I really don't understand why so many people do this. Even the best Linux distro will run worse then ChromeOS one on of these things. i don't get it.

Nur Azhar: how's the battery life on ubuntu? can you get 8 hours?

Roberto Canales: where I can find a tutorial that shows me how to install ubuntu on my chromebook c720. truth want a full OS for multiple jobs, which I do not l ChromeOS thanks for reading my comment....

TheBiloi: Is the install process just like installing to any other computer? Could you boot to a live usb of lubuntu and install from there? Just wanting to be sure I can install other distros. Thanks.

Snowyy97: When steam OS comes out could you try it? It would be powerful enough for slighty older games, oh it's free btw

Joshua Forest: I too want to know if you got the trackpad working in ubuntu!

PigsFly5: Hows the fan?

ae357em: still waiting foe that acer c720 review bro

MrMoneyHelper: I initially wanted to have a dual boot C720. Then I decided that it would be better to put the Ubuntu OS on an external drive and boot from it. Can that be done easily? I know my Mac Book has the ability to boot using an external drive. They call it target disc. Keeping Chrome OS gives it plenty of room for apps. Booting Ubuntu from a 1 TB external HDD would give me all the speed of the C720 and the storage of the HDD. via USB3. Any suggestions on how to make this work?

Amir Rees: How to u get back chrome os

Tyler Frum: Is graphics acceleration working fine? I've thought of getting one of these and putting Debian on it for light editing and some lower end games.

a0999ab99: Have you got the trackpad to work?

Spencer Chastain: You tried playing minecraft on it? I'd love to know how that performs. I'm thinking of getting this laptop for my kids - glad that ubuntu seems to install without much issue.

muyoso: Have you loaded up steam at all and seen how games run?

Brian Fagioli: it takes a hit...I get about 4 hours on Ubuntu vs about 6 on ChromeOS. However, my usage is also very different on each...

Carlos Villegas: thanks for the video. 2 questions: 1) did you getthe the trackpad pad to work. 2) do you know of a way to boot into Ubuntu directly without getting to the chromebook developer screens ?

Luis F GD: Could you install windows 7 on it? You should try Mint on it, and see if the tack pad works. also, did you fix the track pad under Ubuntu?

Kevin Nguyen: How is the battery life while running Ubuntu? same or less than when on chrome OS?

Raymond Wanyoike: Ubuntu running on the Acer C720 -- a $249 Haswell Linux laptop...run, do not walk to your local Best Buy!!!
