    how to install drivers? I installed the ChromeOS on Atom CPU(bay trail) windows 10 tablet. Only touch screen is not working. Seems like there is linux version of the touch screen driver on website, but don't know how to install.

    I've done it a year ago on an old Presario… Well, it's still a Chromebook by today. Thanks.

    For what??? Just because it is new(er)? No customer benefit mentioned!
    You could also put a new great and AWESOME sticker on the back: it´s cheap, compatible, looks great, ABSOLUTELY NO hassle with driver issues or installation issues.

    Is the Cloudready USB Persistent? That is, if you just use it without an install, will it save data and changes?

    The question is, why would I want a chromebook? Windows 10 would work just fine.

    Only one problem with cloudready. It's chromium based so it doesn't have google chrome. Chromium browser doesn't support some video formats.
