  1. I know League of legends is an executable and a Chromebook does not allow executable's in its OS. The thing I was thinking was installing Ubuntu on it and then downloading League but I was wondering can a Chromebook run it well?

    This is a comment I found. I'm not sure what your full specs are though.
    Any netbooks capable of running LoL?
    I found it surprising how turning sound on, killed 80% frame rate.

    .................I play League, how the ....Interesting, now im curious how sound plays a role in the games systems.

    I don't think it will run well on a chrome book, Atom processors (im assuming it has an atom based on what Cliffordcooley said, I have not personally looked at a chromebook yet) cannot do well on it in general and in a huge team fight, your going to drop lots of frames. I have a Microsoft Surface pro with an i5 and intel HD 4000 which I tried league on and it on low can barely keep in the range of 45-60.

    The Chromebook from Samsung runs on an ARM CPU and LoL requires a x86 CPU.
