Google’s Chromebooks aren’t exactly known to be gaming rigs. For the most part, we’ve seen Chromebooks mainly used as computers for work or school, but if you love Google’s Chrome OS and would love to see it become a gaming machine one day, you’re in luck.
As some of you might have heard, Steam is expected to eventually arrive for Chrome OS and according to recently posted code changes, Google has shared an initial list of Chromebook computers that could be among the first to officially support Steam.
These computers include the Acer Chromebook 514 (CB514-1H), Acer Chromebook 515, Acer Chromebook Spin 713 (CP713-3W), ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5500), ASUS Chromebook CX9 (CX9400), HP Pro c640 G2 Chromebook. There is also another computer codenamed Lindar that is said to be an unreleased Chromebook by Lenovo.
This list is hardly an extensive list so there is a good chance that many Chromebook users out there might not be able to run Steam on their computers, but we suppose it’s a start. There is still no word on when Steam will be officially launching on Chrome OS, but if you happen to own any of the computers listed above, it might be something to look forward to in the (hopefully) near future.
