That looks like a really nice machine. Apparently, they're out of stock,
but of course there are newer models available.

Yeah, the Pinebook Pro looks a bit experimental and flimsy to me, so I'm
really tempted to buy one of these Chromebooks instead, if Purr Data runs
on them. :) I guess that I'll have to install Linux on the device first,
though, to get Purr Data to run on it?
