Have an old device that’s no longer supported? Want to give the Chromebook experience a try without buying another device? Consider OS Flex – an operating system that will turn a PC or Mac into a Chromebook.
Your computer will need 4GB of RAM,16GB of storage, and a 64-bit CPU. Get a list of devices known to work with the OS by clicking here.
You will also need a blank 8GB USB drive to create your installation media. OS Flex will replace the current operating system on your device.
Google is offering Flex as a free download though the OS is currently in the testing phase and is sometimes unstable.
