That reminds me I joined this mailing list just about after buying the
Chromebook in October 2012 (I was one of the first to buy it from
Amazon UK. I sent it back a couple of weeks later, silly me!) because
I started to get frustrated with Linux on ARM and I was looking for an
alternative OS.

I don't know where you are located (Germany?). I am now in the
Netherlands and they're nowhere to be found. On Amazon UK the only
cheap second-hand are heavily scratched. I'd rather pay full price if
it is in good condition.
