Chrome OS Flex from Google is now available for old PCs and Macs
The support for old hardware is a major selling point for Chrome OS Flex, as it eliminates the need for businesses to replace existing hardware in order to get the latest modern operating system. More than 400 devices have been certified to work, and installing Chrome OS Flex is as simple as inserting a USB drive.
Google’s acquisition of Neverware, which previously sold an application called CloudReady that allowed users to convert old PCs into Chrome OS systems, made Chrome OS Flex possible. It comes less than a year after Microsoft released Windows 11, which has stringent hardware requirements that will force millions of older PCs to upgrade.
