A chromebook is a computer, often a laptop, that runs the FOSS based, web-browser centric Chrome operating system that is backed by Google corporation.

A list of official Chromebooks including documentation for developers is maintained at the chromium.org site.

Ubuntu can be installed on ARM and x86 based Chromebooks via projects like:

  • crouton in a chroot environment on ChromeOS.
  • ChrUbuntu in a separate partition.
