I am new to the Linux field, and want to get a lightweight dedicated machine. Have learned quite a bit quickly, but surely just a drop from the ocean. My thought process is this: pickup a Chromebook, wipe it, and install Kali. My main concern is the wireless card, and finding monitor ability. I know RAM will slow me down (only 2GB, rather than 8, or even 4), and 16GB hard drives will hold me back. With an SD cars slot, it seems fine to use that for any storage I need, and my main way to transfer any data.
Regardless, I am hoping to be able to skip an easily noticed USB wireless card and find a Chromebook ready to go. If anyone has leads to decent Linux notebooks for the 200 range, or any advice in general will be happily accepted. Thank you for your time!
