I'm thinking of getting a touchscreen Chromebook, is there any way to run or install desktop Mathematica on it?

    $\begingroup$ For my purposes, Mathematica online is a nonstarter. Completely and totally unstable for long running or memory intensive applications, IMO it shouldn't be released, but in private alpha. $\endgroup$ – M.R. Jan 1 '17 at 4:46

    $\begingroup$ Well, the whole idea of the Chromebook is to substitute webapps for desktop apps. Perhaps the Chromebook is not the right choice for you. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Jan 1 '17 at 11:09
