With the way my life is looking right now, I need to try to find a laptop that I can use on the go. I'm not going to be home as much and since I tend to run custom roms on my tablet and phone, alongside other utilities, I need a computer that I can take with me and use when I'm not at my main rig at home. It doesn't have to be a powerhouse or have really any gaming capabilities, all I need out of it is the ability to put manjaro/arch linux on it. I'm willing to go up to $250, but around $200 would be great.
So far I've thought about getting a Chromebook and just putting the linux on instead of ChromeOS, buying a used/refurbished laptop, or buying one of those off-brand no-OS laptops. Anyone have any suggestions other than the chromebook?
