With the right Chromebook you can run Linux and Chrome OS simultaneously today. Here's how you do it.

Looking for a bit of advise...I have an Acer R11 Chromebook that I loved and it did all that I ever needed...Well last week, my cat accidentally knocked a cup of coffee over on it, and after doing all I could to bring it back to life, it is now a paper weight! ...So I am in the market for another Chromebook, and am at a loss as far as what to get! ... My needs are to have it fairly lightweight, at least 4 GB of ram and 32 GB of storage! It doesn't necessarily have to be a convertible, although it would be nice. Something that runs android apps is a must, as well as a decent camera for video conferencing! ...In other words basically all that my Acer R11 was... I do see the R11 still for sale, but I'm thinking that I could get something a little better with an upgraded and better processor for a little more! I heard that the Acer Spin will do all I need, and was wondering if anybody could recommend the Spin? ...Or if there is something in and around that price range of $350 or less that is a good performer.... Thanks in advance for any input!

Hello all! I recently purchased my first chromebook. An acer r11 cb3. It was very very inexpensive so I figured that would be a good first attempt to see how I like them. So far I'm loving it. But I did want to ask you all if there is a way to use the playstore on it? From the research I've done it says it's been planned since like 2016??? I'm just worried I'm not doing something right to activate it or something. Or if there is a way to use it on the beta or dev channel? My wife recently purchased an almost identical Samsung model from walmart and it just got the playstore update 2 days and I'm jealous already Haha. Anyway thanks for any advice at all on how to get the best out of my device.

Screen desktop app links & widgets

i just figured out that you can install launcher(s) from Google Play and solve somehow the desire to have multiple app links on the desktop (not the bottom bar). The issue is that the launcher will run as an app, not instead of the actual launcher, however somehow it solves the issue, at least for me... The bigger issue is that the few launchers that i tried, does not have all the features as they have it in android (e.g. limited selection of widgets). Is there any community where we can raise this kind request to built (or adapt) a launcher for chrome os?!

Many thanks in advance!
