This means as your laptop gets older, it isn’t as convenient or easy to swap out older components for newer ones, meaning that eventually your old laptop will find its way onto your shelf where it will sit there and collect dust for a good long time to come.

However if you’d rather not have your laptop go to waste, there is a piece of software by Neverware called CloudReady that might be worth checking out. Why is that? Basically with this software, it will take your old (or new) laptop and turn it into a dual-booting Chromebook. This means that you will be able to keep using your laptop for Windows or Mac, but at the same time have the option to swap to a more speedy and less resource-intensive Chrome OS.

The software has been around for a while now, so in reality it is only recently that its latest update introduced its dual-booting feature. The app is free for download, but schools are required to pay a licensing fee for it. The instructions on how to download the software and get it up and running on your computer is pretty straightforward.

There are several steps that you will need to go through, so maybe printing them out before hand might be a good idea. If you’d like to download the software, then head on over to its website for the details.
