From articles I've read that in general the intel processors are more friendly to linux dual booting on chromebooks.
I would prefer to get a 10 inch chromebook but the only thing available in that size is Asus flip 101 with an ARM processor
Arch linux seems to be compatible on their site but seems like steam and other linux things are a bit more tricky to get working on arch linux.
And most recently chromebooks are spouting out "native" linux app compatibility. But not sure if that is very useful for things like games or photo editor like gimp.

Does anyone have experience with linux on ARM or Intel chips, haven't been able to find much forums discussing this
