You can dual boot Linux using a tool called ChrUbuntu, or you can run Linux alongside Chrome OS and switch easily between them using a tool called "crouton" as explained in Chapter 12 of http://www.amazon.com/The-Chrome-Book-Fourth-Edition/dp/149095175X

It protrudes from the slot more than with the previous C710 version, which was entirely flush with the slot opening. With the C720 it only goes in a third of the way or so, with the rest sticking out, so it can't be left in there when putting it into a case. Not sure why it was changed; possibly cost savings because it no longer uses a spring loaded mechanism for ejection like the prior style, which allowed it to be installed flush. To remove it on this one, the card needs to be grasped and pulled out.

Yes, you can use skype by going to outlook.com. It also comes with Google hangouts which also works on ios, android, windows, Mac and linux. So you can chat with practically anyone.

Probably not because you can not install any application on a Chromebook that is not from the Chrome Store.

there are two versions 16 GB and 32 GB. The 16GB market price is $199Free shipping, if sold by amazon but when out of stock, those 3rd party sellers' asking price is $247 +shipping. The bigger hard drive version (32GB) rarely goes out of stock from amazon and normally priced at $247 Free Shipping. Its close to impossible to buy the 16GB version from amazon because 3rdparty seller buys all amazon's stock $199) then sells it for $247. Similar to 32GB version, hoping to confuse the buyer into thinking its the same item, and get away from $55+ markup price for Acer C720 16GB.

The Chromebook does not have a CD or DVD drive, but you can play locally stored music and movie files in any of the compatible file types with the media player. You can access your local files via USB. - From the chrome website

You can work with the web based versions of MS Office and Wifi is the best/only way to connect using the Chromebook.

regrets? not at all---i just use a mini mouse plugged into the USB 2.0 port, and therefor i don't get my smudgy hands on the screen; this is just my opinion since i tend to keep all my electronics looking spanking new... the keyboard is supper simple to dust, too.
