    From Sys64738@VERT/TXNET1 to All on Sat Oct 16 09:39:57 2021
    Looking for some help. Trying to make something useful out of this POS. It's extremely lacking in internal memory. Does anyone know of a way to make Chromebook treat a thumbdrive as internal memory? I've seen a few supposed methods to do this on various message forums, but ultimately they don't work.

    tiny is running some version of linux on his and it
    works well.

    i thought about doing that and running my board on it, but i'm probably understating it's lack of internal memory. it's really miniscule.

    just buy an optiplex off of ebay for 40 bucks. and make sure you change your tagline. it says your internal ip.

    Depends on the model - sometimes they've got socketed memory and you can upgrade them on the cheap. The low-end spec is typically 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage, which should be fine to run ChromeOS.

    I'm upgrading it. Just waiting on my 512gb SSD to come in.
