[OPEN] Information needed

Post by kawjr » Sat May 02, 2020 8:32 pm

I have noticed that Windows notebooks are about $100 more than Cromebooks. I don't like Crome and I hate windows so I refuse to pay for it if I am going to wipe the drive when I get home and install ArcoLinux!!!

This is a different road for me so that is why I am asking you guys for your opinion. What are my chances of buying the following and installing ArcoLinux??

Acer Chromebook 315 CB315-3H-C2C3 - 15.6" - Celeron N4000 - 4 GB RAM - 32 GB eMMC - US

Thank you,

Ken

You will not be the first.

Google your computer with the added names

manjaro
arch
arch linux
....


anything arch based
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.

I haven't purchased it yet mate. Why bother if I can't install Linux on it :-)
