Unleashing the power of an Acer Chromebook C710 - 2615 (Part One)

Acer Chromebook C710 - 2615 (http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/acer-acer-c7-11-6-chromebook-silver-...) is a cheap little machine running ChromeOS, it is fast even with only 2 GB memory. For the price $199, It is a value for money web access device. However, it is almost useless if you are not online.

There are a couple ways to unlease the power of this machine, making it an useful online and offline machine.

1. Install Ubuntu by ChrUbuntu

You can install Ubuntu and dual boot to either ChromeOS or Ubuntu

2. Install chrooted Ubuntu by Crouton

You can also install chrooted Ubunut by running a script called crouton.
Once installed, the chrooted Ubuntu can be started from ChromeOS terminal. It is very easy to switch between the two OSs.
At present, chrooted Ubuntu has been installed on my Acer Chromebook, it is running very good. However, there are a couple of drawbacks.

Because the Ubuntu is chrooted, I can not upgrade the Ubuntu 12.04 to newer version. And printer cannot be installed on the chrooted Ubuntu. I may consider to replace the whole ChromeOS sometimes later.

3. Replace the ChromeOS completely by installing a customed SeaBIOS

ChromeOS will be deleted and Ubuntu can be installed on the machine.
