We got one for Christmas but it is blocking all poker sites from downloading.

Any ideas?

I have no idea.
Google Chromebook. Cool stuff! My Lenovo (mid-range) laptop (Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM, 120GB SSD) has been running without any problems for many years, but I am considering getting another portable device. Google Chromebook is definitely one of my top choices.

Check your firewall. Normally it´s a security problem and after a update you can have some problems. In the past i tried a uninstall or restart of the firewall and closed the browser. But otherwise you can use a other prowser for the moment.

I understand that you bought a new laptop and now you have problems with poker sites .... Of course you need to check all the settings and disable the blockers if they are ..... but in general a strange situation ... google against poker? ... .I wonder why so ...? or the laptop is not new and the old owner has set limits?

Who blocks the download windows defender? if yes then you have the option to disable temporary this windows defender. See what windows you have and search google how to do this. After you have disabled and downloaded the programs you will reactivate it again. I hope you will succeed in this way. Smile

You probably just need to edit Android app security settings so that you will be able to download apps from unknown sources and install them on your device. By default you can only download apps from Google Play Store.

I found this after a small search:

One of two things is happening:

1. You are trying to get apps from the Google Play Store, which is for Android devices. This is a common misunderstanding. Android OS =/= Chrome OS. Chromebooks get their apps from the Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/apps
2. You are in the Chrome Web Store, but you must SEPARATELY log into the store [Chrome will remember you past the first time]. Look for the little pulldown at the upper right in the Store's landing page. You cannot be in the Guest login on your Chromebook when you do this.

Maybe that was the reason.
But the one you got with windows now you wont have any problems.
And 11 hours of battery Smile

I thought you can run Android apps in all Chromebooks, but I guess I was mistaken.
According to the articles listed below, there are a limited number of Chromebooks that support Android apps. And currently there doesn't seem to be any Chrome OS-compatible app provided by major online poker sites.

Chrome OS Systems Supporting Android Apps
Install Android apps on your Chromebook

Anyway, enjoy playing the game on your brand new Windows laptop!

This laptop model is good for playing poker. If you want to play PC or laptop games you can play but for that you are allowed to play just older games. For poker or casino is good, i do not see any problems with this. Windows is good. Google chrome or chromebook i do not know how it works because i use mozilla firefox and it is excellent for me.

Naaah, they are working on it (merging Chrome OS with Android for futureproofing devices) but nothing solid yet.
Chromebooks are good for kids and the elderly since they are very closed down devices where you cannot mess up the OS nor let you mess up anything else, but that is their major setback as well - you couldn't do much with it but browsing a web and doing some basic office work on it.
Or put on some linux distro and enjoy nerding out Big Smile

hi there, i really hope that you computer will be working fine, I also have one hp laptop and it is not so old, but not so quick, maybe it is because of the new windows, because my pc is old and not good, but sometimes he can be just as slow, so I don't know which one is the best, but you already made your decision , cool color though!
