Chromebooks: Asus Flip or Acer 11.6 for Linux?

Chromebooks have been burning up the sales charts at Amazon, and one redditor recently had a question about which model to buy. He wanted to know if the Asus Flip or Acer 11.6 was a better value and a better bet to run Linux. It’s a tough question since both laptops are rated 4.5 stars by Amazon customers, and there are pluses and minuses to each model.
