Question about my chromebook (gaming)

I was thinking of downloading my steam library into my school chromebook, do you think it beable to handle some of my basic games? 

Model: asus C434

Games : Among us, Fall guys, smite (with wireless mouse), NFS 4. 

Silent Cerberus - Fractal Design Core500,Ryzen R7 3700x,Scythe Fuma 2,Gigabyte Aorus B550i Pro AX,Crucial Ballistix Elite 3200mhz cl16 16gb,Adata XPG SX8200 nvme 512gb m.2 ssd,Lexar NS100 1tb ssd,Red Dragon RX5700 8gb(bio flashed 5700xt),Corsair SF600 SFX 600w 80+ platinum F-Modular. 

 

Hades - dO.Ob Look into my eyes and see the dark eternal abyss that is your soul and pay for your hidden sins. 

Cerberus - the hell hound that guards the gates of hell. Once you enter you'll never escape.

It can probably do Among Us but I'm not familiar with the other games so I can't really say. I doubt Fall Guys will run at all because of its anticheat.

Quote me to see my reply!

What are the specs of the thing? 

I think Among Us is one of thr few games a Chromebook might be able to run. Else you are either limited by performance (yes, even Fall Guys needs a lot more power than you think) or by the weird Chrome OS.

Meet crouton: Linux gui on a chromebook! It lets you run it as a linux laptop, and you can switch between chromeos and linux. 

 

You might be able to do mc, but 7 year old chromeboo can run 1.16.3 fine on 720p low, but I dont know about your specs. 

 

From what I can tel, with linux it might work. Can you go to chrome://system and do ctrl+f, search for memory. and check memory speed info for how much you have. the cpu is pretty beefy, with a Intel Core m3-8100Y. 1.1ghz base with 3.4 boost, 2c/4t. How much space does your's have?

I am still TechWizardThatNeedsHelp, just less of a mouthfull.

Shoot I forget Linux works on Chromebooks.

 

I have also seen people completely wipe their Chromebooks and install Linux flat. (This might get you in trouble with your school tho lol)

Or dualboot GalliumOS, which is imo the only proper way to get Linux on a Chromebook.

Ehh... I really liked Crouton, it was nice and easy to swap betwween each. Great fo if a parent thinks you are doing work, but you are playing games Great for if you want to have a linux only app runnig and you need to do snappy web work, as the browsing is slower w/ chrome on linux (from my expierience).
