Ealier this year the HiSense Chromebook was released at Walmart in the US, a 11.6-inch quad-core ARM notebook priced at just $149 USD and running ChromeOS. But how well does it run Ubuntu Linux?
The $149 HiSense Chromebook is powered by an alleged 8.5 hour battery, quad-core ARM Cortex-A17 procesor, 2GB of DDR3 system memory, and a 16GB eMMC memory card. For the very low-price compared to other Chromebooks or laptops/ultrabooks for that matter, there's quite a bit of value.
