Not I. My latest is an ASUS Winders 10 14" laptop with SSD and no fans.

RE: Chromebook, Who has one?
I have a Chromebook & use Crostini to access OSCAR. Works well, except it doesn't place an OSCAR icon on Chrome's launcher. But it works fine running from the command line.

RE: Chromebook, Who has one?
I won't get a Chromebook, as I have too many tasks that need a computer, not just a browser.  Yes, the Linux subsystem lets you go beyond just browser tasks, but not far enough for me.  I'm very happy running Linux Mint 19.3.  For the few things I still need a MS Windows for, I light up a VirtualBox virtual machine running Windows 7.

Chrome books a relatively cheap because Google wants people to use them so they can mine their accounts for marketing information

RE: Chromebook, Who has one?
I have a Chromebook. I do not use it with OSCAR. I only use OSCAR on my Win10 computer. I use the Chromebook when travelling because it is small and can run for 3-4 days on the battery without recharging.

RE: Chromebook, Who has one?
The newer Chromebooks are capable of running Linux and then OSCAR. I'm kind of looking for interest and someone to test it once we have instructions to do so.

RE: Chromebook, Who has one?
I have thus far only used my Windows PC to run Oscar but I am a Chromebook fan and own several, including a Pixel Slate. I am willing to test Oscar on Chrome OS via Linux as well.
