Would you be more inclined to provision Chromebooks if they had dedicated graphics?

Looks like NVIDIA is trying to figure out how to get RTX and ray tracing into Chromebooks. We’ve already had this discussion, but for those of you who might be on the fence, would dedicated graphics make you more interested in provisioning Chromebooks more widely across your org?

Considering that I now installed Steam on my personal profiles Linux VM, yeah. Why not! 😉

Graphics cards and more RAM options at affordable prices (thinking of this from an education lens)

The biggest drawbacks of Chromebook’s is weak specs and application compatibility.

 

Graphics capability isn’t even on the radar.

Not sure what you mean? I'm running an i5 processor with 16GB of storage and play City Skyline and Minecraft on it... Passed on on an i7 processor.

Debian really has some good compatibility and relatively wide usage in 2021.

I also run Zoom on the Windows VM from time to time. This device has incredible performance.

I’m thinking more for our power users.

 

i5/i7 and 16 GB ram is what we give to standard users. Our developers need i9 or AMD Ryzens with 32+ GB’s of ram.

Oh yeah...That's totally different user base. Not even sure they'd appreciate being limited to Debian.

An iOS developer would never get a Chromebook.
