    Will this game run on a chromebook?

    I am thinking about getting a chrome book and i am wondering if this game will run on one.

    This is the one I am looking at:

    I don't think so because you need to install the plugin, which is essentially a native application. I have not tried this, but haven't considered Chrome Books at all because of this limitation.

    Not really because it is based on ARM, and QL does not support the ARM architecture.

    It's theoretically possible to emulate an architecture QL can run on, but there would be a serious performance hit and the performance would already be questionable even if it was native.

    So essentially the answer is just "no".

    No but it should run on the Asus Transformer Book once it's released. It's got the setup of a classic Transformer pad, buit it runs an intel processor and got Win8 on it. (the regular Win8, not the ARM architecture version)

    You could install Linux on the chromebook.. Then run Quake Live.
