I've got a student coming in January and he's going to work on ChromeOS on AMD CPUs, starting with the Gizmo. If, at that time, someone has a suggestion for an AMD laptop which might be suitable, let me know.
Would you care to elaborate on that?
Ron, could you please define, what you mean by »suitable«? Like easily hackable to put coreboot on it?
As much as I hate HP, they do seem to have some of the best AMD-based laptops. I would look at the ProBook 655 G1 / 645 G1 or the HP ProBook 6475b.
I got the Ultrabook Asus U38N-C4010H with the processor A8-4555M and the chipset AMD A70M (Hudson M3). As it is an Ultrabook it looks pretty nice, but the hardware is highly integrated and not easily accessible. I’ll put Debian GNU/Linux on it now and keep you posted with further information about the Linux support (useful for Chrome OS support) if you are interested.
