New & Radically Improved ChrUbuntu!

If you abandoned ChrUbuntu some time ago, as I did, then you may have missed Mr. Lee's recent blog update.  Not only has he completely rewitten his ChrUbuntu script, he's conceptually changed his approach in several ways.  I haven't tried it out yet because I've got a number of things in-progress ATM, but I would definitely have to say that the new script looks "Impressive ... Most impressive!"

New C7 with 16GB SSD at BestBuy for $199

BestBuy now has the revised model C710-2833 Acer C7 Chromebook with a 16GB SSD available for $199 with free shipping.  Otherwise, it appears to be identical to the original model C710-2847 sold by Google.  Don't miss the fact that BestBuy is selling it for $30 less than Acer's M.S.R.P.  I'm very curious if the SSD has a significant impact on battery life but haven't seen any reports yet.  No kickbacks here, I'm just trying to do my part to promote Chromebooks.
