Most Chromebooks are really low-end hardware even by Android standards, because the price is the attraction. I don't think they'd be very good for MAME.

Yeah I afraid of that. I do know that the Chromebook added the Linux beta now. Two of my chromebooks have the Android and Linux installed. Weird having all three in one.

There are some higher-end ones, but I don't see that being a viable (or commonly available) option. Besides, you kinda already can-- archive.org and all. Just don't expect the experience to be as good as native.

I don't remember what happened to the "run linux stuff on chromebook" project, but that might be another way if that didn't get killed off.

But yeah, I'm with RB-- experience won't be great in general. Even a cheap end ultrabook would probably run circles around most Chromebooks.

There used to be a NaCl build of MAME that worked on ChromeBooks, but Google abandoned that, like everything else. I don’t think chasing Google platforms is really worthwhile.

Google, as Vas implied, has a very short attention span.
