Will a cheap chrome book work as the local computer?


I want to use a cheap computer with big battery life as the  local TeamViewer computer, something like this...

Is that powerful enough? The remote computer that I will be connecting to is very powerful, but I don't know how much processing power the local computer needs. And also, will TeamViewer work fine on Chrome OS or do I need to be looking for a Windows laptop?

Thanks in advance!

Hello @Timmo,

Yes, this computer should be good enough to have TeamViewer running on it.

We are happy to announce that you can now share the screen of your devices running ChromeOS. 🙌

If you want to connect via unattended access, please use the TeamViewer Host.
If you want to connect spontaneously, please use the TeamViewer QuickSupport.

You will find the download links here:

Alternatively, you can also download these versions directly on our website here: TeamViewer for Chrome OS

Please also find additional information here: Supported platforms - Chrome OS 

Feel free to share your feedback!

Have a good end of the week. and stay safe! 🍀
