Buying a Chromebook for Ubuntu- Questionsview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, I'm looking to buy a Chromebook for Ubuntu. The one I'm currently looking at is the Acer C720, since its only $200. I do have a few questions: Is 2 GB of RAM enough for normal use under Ubuntu? If not, is it possible to use a swap file on the SSD? If neither of those options are feasible, I'll buy the Dell Chromebook 11 instead. (Hardware)

[ubuntu] PC with Ubuntu 14.04 freezes up when browsing the Internetview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on a Dell Precision T1500 desktop PC and the installation went well. But every time I launch FireFox or Chrome and browse to a web page, the screen becomes very unresponsive, then eventually the computer freezes up and I will have to cold restart the computer.

Gaming rig for friend. Make sense?view story

http://hardforum.com – This is the 4th machine I will build for this good friend of mine. Last one made it 6 years (still going actually!) A new record! This new rig will be build with the following in mind: GPU and SSD (m.2) upgrade down the line. Plus a new monitor at some point, most likely 27" 2560x1440. Main doubts are SSD and Cooler. Also is it a good idea to buy now and not in mid December? (Hardware)

Pentium Anniversary Edition for Webview story

http://hardforum.com – I would like to play with the Pentium AE and now I have the perfect excuse: I need a new PC for an elderly person, HDD is failing, PSU is acting up and it's already 9 years old. He does a lot of web browsing and some video watching from time to time. I see he hates waiting for it to start up, so SSD is a certainty already. 1) What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming? Photoshop? (Hardware)
