I have been reading with great interest all the hu-bub about the Chromebook; it runs a stripped-down version of Unix. They are selling like hot cakes with current selling prices above retail, and people are still buying them. From what I have read, all you seem to get is a fast booting and quick Internet browsing machine for appx $200. SO, I have been experimenting around with different version of Unix, and I have about become a convert. I had NO IDEA how fast Unix is comapred to Windows 7, especially on lower-end machines. My point is: Why limit what you can do with a Chromebook when you can have a lot more functionality with the Unix flavor of your choice?
