Developer Information for Chrome OS Devices

This page provides developer-related information for Chrome devices. 

Notebooks and Desktops

This section lists devices that shipped from the factory with Google Chrome OS on them. For details about Google Chrome OS and how it differs from Chromium OS, see the note in the FAQ about Google Chrome OS. Chrome OS devices typically require special setup in order to be used for Chromium OS development.

Caution: Modifications you make to the system are not supported by Google, may cause hardware, software or security issues and may void warranty.

Remember: Chrome OS devices are not general-purpose PCs. We believe you should be able to hack on your own property, but if you do it's not our fault if something breaks.
