I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about hardware recommendation.

comment resolv.conf is merged from two networks
See serverfault.com/questions/363095/… for some information about 127.0.1.1. Essentially it refers to the computer itself. This by itself won't connect to anything other than the same computer. This is called loopback interface.

comment cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
The exe in the end tells me this program is for Windows, it will not run in Ubuntu unless it is recompiled for Linux or run via WINE, a Windows compatibility layer.

comment Want to install Ubuntu on Chromebook
Follow newchromebook.com/guide/… if you want to convert the C720 Chromebook to an Ubuntu-book. Use Ubuntu 15.04 instead of 13.04.

comment Want to install Ubuntu on Chromebook
I have installed "real Ubuntu" (Chrubuntu as well as plain ordinary Ubuntu) on Acer 720 with a 128GB SSD. Both works. If you want to erase the ChromeOS (after making recovery SD/USB) and make it a full-time Ubuntu-book, then go with plain Ubuntu 15.04 (or later). Please update your question if you want to delete ChromeOS and install Ubuntu on the whole SSD.

comment Ubuntu 14.04 installation issue alongside windows 7
You have 4 primary partitions, that is the maximum one can have. You have to delete at least one, to create an extended partition. Inside the extended partition you will be able to create many logical partitions. You may want to ask Microsoft how to convert their dynamic disk into a static disk first, before messing with partitions.

So you mean you are logged out not the that you are logged in and the screen is locked. Please clarify.

comment What systems/remote desktops allow remote unlocking and locking
I am not sure what you mean by unlock the computer. Are you logged on to the desktop and the screen-lock is on, and you must enter a password? Or you are not logged on to the computer, and you must enter the password to log on?

Why not use Chrome Remote Desktop extension on both Chromebook and desktop?

comment Booting Ubuntu 15.04 in WIndows 8.1 (Pre Installed)
Just because installation of 15.04 worked in 9 computers tried by the answer provider, it means that it will work on all the computers with various UEFI default settings.

comment Booting Ubuntu 15.04 in WIndows 8.1 (Pre Installed)
There is a lot more to installing Ubuntu along side Windows 8 and above than just hitting F1 or F12 and booting from the USB. It is not clear if you stopped "Fast Boot" in Windows and followed other steps in the answers to the original. If you did all that, edit your question and refer to the original question above, and state what you did and didn't do.

comment New version of LibreOffice file reverts back to previous version
Make sure that the version 2 was not saved in LibreOffice's native ODF format. If so, open that file and save as docx.

comment Encrypted Drives
No. You made backups, didn't you? You can try to boot from a live USB/DVD/CD and decrypt the drive using your passphrase. Then copy your important files in an USB drive and start over again.
