I finally got rid of chromeOS completely and put in Xubuntu 15.04. It may be worse but I feel better now, I was continuously annoyed having to live with all the limited and internet-connected features I did not ask for or understand.

Why did launching seaBIOS suddenly work (pressing ctrl L previously did just literally nothing, not even the two beeps) ? I did the step about patching it for this particular chromebook again, maybe typing at the right shell this time.

Dell Chromebook review after some time:
Good: it is very light and portable and seems durable. ChromeOS is shiny and user friendly and simple. Everything is always in the cloud and thus backed up, if you're into that. Slightly better memory and speed than other very small cheap things (will see how that does on only xubuntu shortly). Pretty compatible and modifiable, easily got an alternative ubuntu desktop environment to use command line, IDEs, latex, and all that on & somewhat easily put on an entire xubuntu operating system.
Bad: Keyboard feels oddly mushy but works, mousepad is frustrating and often doesn't move or jumps around or clicks or highlights. Screen isn't super clear. Everything is literally all in your google account all the time, I just don't like it.
