HiSense Chromebook Benchmarks When Running Ubuntu Linux

Ealier this year the HiSense Chromebook was released at Walmart in the US, a 11.6-inch quad-core ARM notebook priced at just $149 USD and running ChromeOS. But how well does it run Ubuntu Linux?

The $149 HiSense Chromebook is powered by an alleged 8.5 hour battery, quad-core ARM Cortex-A17 procesor, 2GB of DDR3 system memory, and a 16GB eMMC memory card. For the very low-price compared to other Chromebooks or laptops/ultrabooks for that matter, there's quite a bit of value.

Besides being able to run ChromeOS, it can also be modified to run Ubuntu and other Linux distributions.

While I don't have my hands on the HiSense Chromebook, a Phoronix user has managed to run some benchmarks with the Phoronix Test Suite and uploaded his benchmark results for this sub-$150 computer to OpenBenchmarking.org.

If you're curious about the standalone results for this $149 Chromebook computer with quad-core ARM processor, all of this independent user's test results can be found via this OpenBenchmarking.org result file.
