Thanks man.. i had 4 year old intel atom laptop having 2 gigs of ram...I tried linux mint xfce...Bodhi linux...puppy linux(quite ugly) but the experience wasn't that great..chrome os is beautiful and smooth at the same time....I would recommend all guys to change their stable channels to beta channel to get latest updates.....though it would might be a little bit buggy..FOR OFFICE , download office online extension..
Are you crazy? Google doesn't give you free software because they are nice people. They want all your information. Go ahead if you want to share all your docs and pics with Big Brother. Now there's a good sheeple. Backup to Big Brothers server. Good idea sheep.
Google is such a savage! It's never too much data for a tech-giant, such as, Google.
Chrome, Free OS? More like a cloud service with a few products(apps) combined to give it a feel of an OS. A mean to collect larger, but more organized data by its individual user. All well-funnelled into their hub for cherry-picking(running queries). Clevuh girl! 🌚
Imma still give it a try on my old HP Mini-110-1000 for fun sake. This and Lubuntu 14, vs. XP Home ☺️
This is a great video, keep it up. Another method to make an ancient computer run fast enough to use is to install a lightweight distro of Linux. There are distros as small as 35mb. However, even though Linux has gotten a lot more user friendly these days, it's still not as easy to use as Chrome
Di you think I will get better performance if I put this on my laptop it's a dual-core Celeron from early 2017 that cost $200, it couldn't even run League of Legends because of the hard drive size it was only 28 GB
I did this install on my old Dell D620, but found that it does not support an external, such as connecting it to a TV?! Is this the case or do I need to do something to make this happen? Otherwise I will go back and install Linus Mint. I enjoy the videos thanks.

Hi Bri Just done this for a 94 year old lady on her old dell pentium 2 laptop with 2 gigs of ram and a 250 gig hard drive that she never used as it was a real slug to use now it boots in under 15 seconds and runs smoothly for her modest needs, email, Facebook, skype, and uses google notes when needed she has been attending an I.T. Class I run for the last two years and liked windows on our win 7 and win 1 laptops but hated going home to her old slow laptop and could not afford to upgrade it she now really likes her chrome dell
I have recently successfully converted an old Dell laptop to a Chromebook with CloudReady Chromium software... I like to use the built-in DVD (re-write) to view DVDs so I was wondering if you had any recommendations..?
I'm having some problems with building the installer. I don't have a Windows PC for using the USB installer and Chromebook Recovery Utility doesn't run on my Linux PC. It says Linux is unsupported. Please help.
Why the hell would you want such a neutered OS installed? If you want a great basic OS for and average user than Ubuntu would be a far better choice. Chrome OS is basically a glorified web browser, almost all applications are web based.
Im looking at buying a tablet that runs windows10pro, SSD, ram the whole lot, but if I bought this tablet in hopes to turn it google chrome would I be better off just going Android? looking for maximum product purchase out of the least hardware-budget.

Linux all the way... massive choice, geared for novice use (my non technical 70+ yr old Dad is 100% Linux now for all his needs web, email, office, photo editing etc) and experts alike, lots of software which is typically free as in no nasty EULA (end user agreement) sucking your data; also free as in cost though investing in your community via donations is good to do. Very easy updating (far easier than windows these days!) and your in complete control... plus an enthusiastic and supportive community...
