I have a old desktop pc that has windows 98 on it, I don't use it because I have a newer laptop etc.
I was wondering about putting the Google OS on it and then putting a wifi stick thing in the back so it could be used for the internet.
The computer has 128MB of RAM, not sure about the processor, definitely less than 1GHz probably less than 500MHz. I think it is 16bit. I don't know what make the computer is, I think it was built by a local company.

What hardware limits does google OS have?

Actually Google Chrome is the name given to both their browser and their Operating System. (Which seems unduly confusing, but then the OS is basically just a browser itself).

I don't know what specifications it's meant to run on, but they don't provide the OS for download or on a disk. If you wanted to try it out, I believe you'd need to purchase one of the Chrome OS specific laptops their making.

I have bought a usb stick with it on, just waiting for it in the post. If it doesn't work with the usb stick then I will try putting it on a disk.
I have a netbook that i am 90% sure it will work on that.
