Mint Pixel?

I'm thinking that would make one heck of a nice Linux Mint computer :-)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

:shock: $1300? I can get a mcabook air for less than that. With better specs to boot. But no touchscreen... And a 32GB SSD is pretty tight. I'm already halfway full on my 128GB.
I think I'l stick to my $600 laptops instead. I have to admit though, that is a pretty nice screen.

Yep seems to niche and expensive. Tho looks like a well made one.
And never seen positive response from users with a touch screen laptop.
Tablet users when that is all they have to interact with yes.

But throw in a keyboard - trackpad then why hell do I need a touch screen?
Would wear myself out with all the extra vertical touch screen touching and back & forth between screen and keyboard :?
Maybe I Just Don't Get it? Possible.

Booting stock LinuxMint (including kernel) on the Chromebook Pixel.

Looks like Cinnamon. Man I'd love to play around with Mint Cinnamon on a Chromebook
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!
