Don’t see your model?

New models are certified regularly. Few models issued before 2007 can be certified; below are general system requirements which serve as a rough guide to what may work with CloudReady.

System Recommendations:

RAM -

2 GB or more RAM  will provide a fluid CloudReady experience. Additional RAM will help make multi-tab browsing and app-switching smoother. Machines with less than 2 GB RAM may have significant performance issues on CloudReady.

Connectivity -

Wifi or Ethernet access is necessary during CloudReady set up, and just like Chromebooks, many applications cannot be used when offline.

BIOS -

Changing a PC’s operating system requires access to the BIOS settings. In most cases, everything works fine with default settings, but in some cases you may need to update the BIOS on your computers, or toggle certain settings.

Storage -

Like Chromebooks, CloudReady relies primarily on cloud-storage, and so only requires 8GB local storage (HDD or SSD).

Chipset / Graphics -

On CloudReady, graphics processing is where computers show their age the most. Every model is unique, but the following are “rules of thumb” for what has potential to meet our certification standards:

  • Desktops & Laptops: Introduced on or after May 2007
  • Netbooks: Introduced on or after June 2009
  • NOTE: Netbooks with Intel GMA 500, 600, 3600, or 3650 graphics will have very poor performance despite meeting other technical requirements.
