Deployed by hundreds of school districts worldwide

We needed a solution for our ChromeOS based users that needed to run x86 applications. Parallels Desktop for Chromebooks allowed us to create a virtual Windows computer on ChromeOS based devices that functioned just like a physical x86 based Windows machine. Parallels Desktop for Chromebooks is a very powerful and easy to use virtual machine solution.
