A tutorial and slight manifesto on reviving end-of-life Chromebooks. How to make them into autonomous servers, and why we need to rethink computing in the age of climate collapse.

A cool thing this post points out is how old Chromebooks can essentially be repurposed for anything a raspberry pi does! I think the only thing that’s missing are the in depth tutorials.

It would also be really cool to see 3D printed enclosures for Chromebook motherboards, like what Framework has released for their computers. Maybe there’s too much variation between models, but minimizing the form factor would definitely increase viability as an rpi-like!
