Complete list: The best chromebooks

Contrete details are missing so far

Harmell is Google product boss in the area of ​​gaming, so should know what he’s talking about. The problem: More than this casual mention he did not drop as part of the event. Further details on which chromebooks is exactly the alpha running, which users and users have access to it and where they get them, remains completely unclear at the present time. Harell referred for more information on the official Chromebook Community Forum. According to the report on the present time, there are no further official details.

It is well possible that Google and Valve deliberately kept the announcement, as it seems to be a very early alphaversion of the software. They should be far from running around and could scare many potential users. When and in what form there are further information about Steam for Chrome OS, remains to be seen for the time being. In February 2022, an unofficial list had emerged that could provide information on supported chromebooks.
