Looking for a inexpensive laptop to learn some Linux . Specifically something with good track pad support . I understand Linux will run on basically anything , but recent hardware would be preferable, possibly even a chrome book , maybe something under $150

- Total budget and country of purchase:
Would like to stay under 200, but can go up to 250 if necessary.
- Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications to your requirements for the money? Pick or include any that apply.
Doesn't need to have a good gpu or work as a tablet. I would like a decent battery, though.
- How important is weight to you?
Not super important, but I don't expect my budget to yield anything super heavy.
- Which OS do you require? Windows, Linux, Mac.
Not completely sure. I might take some computer science classes in college and would like to be able to program on this laptop. I don't know if that's possible on chrome os. If I use a cloud service, how easy would that be to pick up on my desktop? I don't know, please recommend what you think would be the best for this.
- Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A.
Just not obnoxiously tiny
- Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run. If you have no requirements, put N/A.
As I mentioned earlier, programming. Gaming and other programs will be done on my desktop.
- If you're gaming (leave blank if you put N/A above...), do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want?
- Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable business grade build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)?
- Leave any finishing thoughts here that you may feel are necessary and beneficial to the discussion.
Just want the fastest laptop I can get for writing papers and programming for around $200

I didn't see any. I didn't see many great deals anyway...
Chromebook for school? [R]5 years, 3 months agoOrangematz posted submission on SuggestALaptop.

Im thinking about getting a chromebook for school. All it will be used for is taking notes and browsing the web. The price tag is so low that it seems like it will be good for its intended use. I have a built i5, gtx970 at home for any of the more demanding stuff I have to do as well as gaming.
Would a chromebook be good for work processing and web browsing? If so, does any one model stick out as the best?
I also am completely fine with installing a linux distro on it, as long as I can still get the documents onto google drive and work on them from my home computer.

If you're just using Google Docs and web browsing, yeah, the Chromebook would be great for you! No need to put Linux on it for your needs.
What do you think of the Dell Chromebook? I suggested this one because it's pretty rugged and well built; and since you are going to be using it for taking notes and browsing the web and might be taking it around with you, it's a good idea for it to be able to withstand a few blows.
C720p vs Dell 11 (2015) (touchscreen version) [R]5 years, 3 months agoReading_is_Cool posted submission on chromeos.
April 16, 2015
I'm debating between these two chromebooks. My wife/kids will be using it the most. (If anything, I will get one of my own). I'm leaning towards the 2015 Dell 11 Version, knowing it has a weaker processor (N2840) vs the C720p (2955U), but this chromebook should have better battery life. Will my wife notice the weaker processer if shes doing the basic web browsing/video playing/maybe up to 10 tabs open. No Linux for them as far as I'm aware off.

How old are your kids? This [Dell 11] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FBBUIDM/ref=s9albwg147i4?pfrdm=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pfrds=merchandised-search-3&pfrdr=0D1Y7AH4743YWXXK6CR1&pfrdt=101&pfrdp=2065285742&pfrdi=2858603011) is practically indestructible but I don't think it's touchscreen.
If you're going with either the touchscreen dell or the C720p, I'd go with the C720p. It's one of the speediest Chromebooks out there right now.
Have you considered the Toshiba Chromebook 2? It's arguably one of the best Chromebooks out right now.
Fastest 13 inch chromebook? [R]5 years, 4 months agoMarch 30, 2015
March 31, 2015
I've heard mixed reviews about the performance of the Toshiba 2. Some say it's really fast, some say it's laggy. When I saw it, I didn't know what to think either. The screen is beautiful but when I used it, I didn't feel like the browsing speed was any better than other chromebooks I've used.
I think the [Dell 11] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FBBUIDM/ref=aslitl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00FBBUIDM&linkCode=as2&tag=bachelordigsc-20&linkId=V3LCIWBBBDTNBW4H) is fast, especially for the pricepoint.
It was built for classroom purposes, so it's made to be a powerhouse rather than be something pretty to look at.
The build quality is probably the most rugged I've ever seen (aside from the Pixel). It's spill resistant, rumble resistant, nuclear bomb resistant, and the screen can bend down flat to 180 degrees. The Toshiba 2 has a great build quality too, but the Dell looks like it's built for intergalactic warfare.
The screen isn't as crystalline as the Toshiba 2, but the Dell does have wicked awesome viewing angles. It either comes in a 720p anti-glare screen or a glossy 1080p screen. It's nice to have options!
From what I understand, these Dells are hard to keep in stock because they're always selling out.
EDIT: Dell also makes a core i3 chromebook. The screen is just whatever, but it is also pretty fast.
EDIT 2: I also just realized that you're asking for a 13". The dell is 11.6". So... yeah.
