    i don't know about putting linux on it. but chromebooks are usually pretty highly rated. the one you picked is awfully heavy though.

    if you want soemthing for just browsing and ease of mobility, get a tablet. seems like a no-brainer.

    (nexus 7, or ipad - don't waste your money on a kindle fire)
