ChromeOS Flex Docking
With the chipset shortage bemoaning the industry many enterprises have been resorting to other methods of staying productive including repurposing older MacBooks and Windows PCs. Many of these older devices were developed during, and supported by, a much older version of their respective Operating Systems (OS). They do not work efficiently if at all with more recent versions of Windows and macOS.
Therefore, many enterprises are resorting to deploying the much lighter ChromeOS that can be used by Users for much of what they would otherwise might require a modern laptop. One way to offer Users the opportunity to use their older Windows PC or Macbook is ChromeOS Flex.
