Ron, could you please define, what you mean by »suitable«? Like easily
hackable to put coreboot on it?

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.
