Installing Windows on chromebook Pixel 2!

Google's shiny new chromebook was released last night. and you can see more details at http://www.google.com/chromebook/pixel/
so the spec sheet looks impressive and whole design and screen is getting praised all over the internet. Now comes the next question can this beast handle alternatives like Windows or Linux. Personally I think its possible given that google now allows you to boot from USB and the spec sheet dosnt look odd. Can the SSD be upgraded or is it soldiered to the mobo is a question we need answers to. Well before you read any further we dont have the answer yet, got any info?

Below are some of the cheapest laptops in the market that can build you a great Chromium OS laptop. I will be adding more models everyday. Most of the listed laptops range from $200-300. Why not buy a chromebook you may ask, well these laptops are offered in many screen sizes and bigger hard drives, Plus you get the advantage of booting either ChromeOS, Windows or linux... or why not all? ;)

All Credit goes to Arnold from arnoldthebat.co.uk for building chromeOS for us. Do visit his site for downloads and don't forget to donate for his hard work!!
