Chromebook – Minimum Specifications 

7.1  Minimum System Requirements

  • Chrome OS version 59
  • 2 integrated USB 2.0 ports
  • Intel Celeron, 2 GB RAM

7.2  Recommend System Requirements

  • 1 integrated USB 3.0 type A port
  • Intel i5 processor
  • 4 GB RAM

The manufacturer (LVI) recommends using an Intel-based Chromebook together with a MagniLink camera since we have noticed compatibility problems with ARM-based Chromebooks.

A USB 3.0 Y may be needed to supply sufficient power to the MagniLink camera system.  A USB Y cable permits the use of 2 USB ports to drive a MagniLink camera system.

LVI has tested the software on a number of Intel-based Chromebooks without problems, but there is no guarantee that the system will work with all Chromebooks that follow the specification.  LVI recommends test the software with the Chromebook where the system is to be used, in order to ensure compatibility.  Better performing computers will facilitate better camera performance.
