I've followed this thread with much interest. I wanted to upgrade my C700 because it was so slow with Vista. I installed Peppermint/Linux and it boots in 15 seconds! A while ago I got curious and noticed that Android-x86.org had released a generic x86 build for Jelly Bean (Android 4.2). I installed it on a USB stick and WOW! It is fast. It boots in 24 seconds using a read-only system model (compressed). It supports some live wallpapers and the touchpad can serve as both a mouse and quasi-direct manipulation device ( Tap, then swipe as if with a touch screen). This is fun! The only down side is that some apps were optimized for ARM architectures so you might not get some of your favorites to work (Netflix, Angry Birds). There are still plenty to go around. Give it a try with a live USB or LiveCD from Android-x86.org :thumbsup: Now I am triple booting Android Jelly Bean, Peppermint/Ubuntu/Linux and Windows Vista as a last resort.
