Parallels has announced that Parallels Desktop of the same name now supports affordable Chromebooks with Intel Core i3 and AMD Ryzen 3 processors. This will enable more businesses and educational institutions to run full-featured Windows apps on Chrome OS-based laptops, both online and offline.

It’s been possible to run virtualization software on Chromebooks since late 2020, although until now systems had to have at least one Core i5 or i7 chip. From now on, 11th generation Core i3 CPUs and Ryzen 3 models from the 5000 series will suffice.

In addition, the software is now included with select Chrome OS Enterprise devices from HP. The following models are eligible for a one-year free license for one user:

  • HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook Enterprise
  • HP Elite c640 G3 Chromebook Enterprise
  • HP Elite c645 G2 Chromebook Enterprise
  • HP Pro c640 G2 Chromebook Enterprise
  • HP Chromebox G3 Enterprise

Parallels Desktop for Chrome OS is only available to professional and educational customers, there is currently no consumer variant. The subscription costs 60 euros per user per year, plus a one-month free full-featured trial for five user licenses can be found on the company’s website.
