I am doing some research for buying a new Chromebook. I see Chromebook with Intel, AMD and MTK processors. I think Intel and AMD processors are x86 architecture and MTK processors are ARM. When I do a quick search on the processor, for example Intel N4000, it is classified as Mobile and does not say if it is x86 or ARM. Perhaps I did not do a good detail search. My understanding is Chrome OS will run on both x86 and ARM processors and general users will probably never notice the difference. However what I like to know is if one day I want to make the Chromebook into Windows, does the x86 processor make it possible while the ARM processor may not ? or I should forget about this flexibility because the hardware (Including BIOs) will not allow me to do the change ?
