I wonder if there is a way to scrap Chrome OS for a linux Distro...
The new Pixel looks great. I wasn't sure if the market was ready for such a high-priced model, but it seems to have found its niche.
One obstacle to wider adoption of Chromebooks (especially in business) is the popularity of Windows applications, especially Microsoft Office. One way around this is with solutions like Ericom AccessNow, an HTML5 RDP client that enables Chromebook users to connect to Terminal Server or VDI virtual desktops, and run Windows applications (like MS Office) or even full desktops in a browser tab. So even if you purchase a Chromebook for casual home use, you can also use it to connect to your work applications if necessary.

Yes. In fact, that's what Linus Torvalds himself uses. See http://www.zdnet.com/chromebooks-biggest-fan-linus-torvalds-7000012842/
Thanks, this really opens up my interest towards this product. The idea I can use an expandable SD is a major perk. Not really a fan of the idea you are forced to use verizons LTE. Fast sure, but expensive for what you get.

@Shadizzle: Crouton seems to be the best way to run Linux on a Chromebook: https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton#readme
Re LTE, 2 years of LTE service @ 100 MB/month are bundled with the Pixel's purchase price. I use cellular data as a backup when Wi-Fi is unavailable, and in 2.5 years of using Chromebooks, I have blown through the 100 mb monthly quota exactly once; a 24-hour day pass (unlimited data) cost $9.95. 1 terabyte of Google Drive storage for 3 years is also included with a new Pixel. For the first 2-3 years, there are really no other ownership costs beyond initial purchase price.
