Phoronix: Google's Already Working On Haswell Chromebooks
Intel hasn't yet even released their Haswell processors to the general public for use within notebooks, ultrabooks, and desktops, but Google engineers are already hard at work on prepping Haswell Chromebooks...
Chromebook is like a tablet with a keyboard
It comes with like 2 GB RAM and you can't really use it for anything useful consumption.
It is just a web browser.
What about CROUTON benchmarks
CROUTON Chromium OS Ubuntu Chroot Environment https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton
CROUTON needs some benchmarks and a great article here at Phoronix.
I think it is a "must have" for Chrome OS power users.
And of course an easy guide for intalling it would help non power users to convert they "silly" Chromebook to a complete computer, being able to use a complete GNU/Linux OS including wine and QEMU, Virtual box and others for MS WOS, OSX Android and IOS virtualization or "no emulation".
