Yesterday I shared the first Phoronix tests of Ubuntu running on the Acer C720 Chromebook, a ChromeOS-focused device powered by an Intel Celeron "Haswell" processor. The performance was great -- as was the build quality and features -- for being a $199 USD device that can be loaded with other operating systems too.

The Acer C720 Chromebook will be featured in more tests in the next few weeks while today are some other random benchmarks I had recently carried out on the Acer C720 when running Linux. The results will mostly be of interest to those that want to run their own performance comparisons to the Haswell Celeron Chromebook using the Phoronix Test Suite.

1312061-SO-CHROMEBOO74 - Various OpenGL benchmarks of the Intel HD Graphics on the Chromebook at differing resolutions.

1312079-SO-CHROMEBOO62 - Tests of the Linux 3.10, 3.11, 3.12, and 3.13 Git kernels from the Acer C720 with Ubuntu.

1312097-SO-ACERC720C56 - Various standalone benchmarks from the Acer C720 when running with Ubuntu 13.10.
