Haven't looked close at CBs but if it's x86 then an x86 build performance will 
be 8-10 times faster than an app running in an arm emulator. At least that's 
what I measured using an x86 Android tablet.

Android apps run in an emulator on Chromebooks. I forgot to mention that the 
emulator is only 32-bit so you have to build ARM 7 apps for Chromebook. 
I haven't needed to build an x86 app, my tests have all run okay on three 
different models.
