You could use the new open1to1 InternetOS edition.   It is not an authentic ChromOS, but is the same idea, and is tested with SBAC.

That's too bad, we just put the hexxen build on an old netbook.  Seemed to work well so far

I believe this info is obsolete, Elizabeth I don't think Hexxeh is making Chromium builds any more. There might be someone else out there doing it, though, otherwise, you have to compile it yourself.   At any rate, there's no flash support in them, and when I tried one, there weren't any drivers in it for things like the touchpad, unless I ran it on new enough hardware that would hardly be an economical way to build Chromebooks.  Drivers will probably always be the issue with this idea, Google isn't going to write the drivers for hardware that's not in a Chromebook, so you're dependent on third parties doing it, and they're all writing them for Linux, if anything.

Perhaps I sounded snarky, but I truly did mean "wow". I was surprised to hear of a new Chromebook from a company that hasn't made computers before, esp. with a processor from a company also an unknown. We do have Acer Chromebooks with Arm processors (such as the one Raymond mentioned a while back). 

Haven't you ever wondered what it would take to turn an old laptop you have on hand into a Chromebook?

It might not be the top of the line, but many schools aren't close to providing devices to students for ubiquitous computing.  How many schools are currently 1:1?  does being a 1:1 have an advantage on SBAC testing? does 1:1 support students in preparing for college and career?  I think there is a huge inequity in the state where some students are digital learners, where other's are left in the past. 
It bothers me to do trainings with educators and when they are done they say, that it was great but I can't do any of that in my classroom because we don't have enough computers. 
A price point of $149 there should be no excuses.

Wow, a $149 Chromebook from Haier, featuring an Arm cpu from a company I'd never heard of, Rockchip

Google pushes Chrome OS software, with or without Chromebooks


Google's Chromebit turns any computer monitor with an HDMI port into a full-blown computer.
