RE: Google Chromebook, anyone try it?
On a related note: yesterday I tried an installer (CloudReady) that creates a Chromebook bootable USB stick.

Worth a try for an old laptop. Booting from the usb stick gives a feel for the Chrome OS; there is also an option to install Chromebook on the laptop's hard disk, permanently converting it in a Chromebook (this will erase all content on the hard disk).

The process (at least from a linux box) was easy
  • Download the zipped boot image
  • unpack the zip file (I used jar)
  • copy the boot image to the usb stick with dd
