Chromebook/laptop to run midiLocked

Im not very good with technical stuff so I’m hoping someone where can help me.
I’m looking to buy a 2 in 1 Laptop or chromebook. One of its main uses will be to be connected to a Yamaha digital piano to use apps like Flowkey, simply Piano, Yousician etc. I’m not sure which one(s) I would go for (this is for my nephew, not me).
My questions is, would a chromebook be able to run these apps or would I need a Windows laptop? I’ve already tried a HP Pavilion 360 (4gb ram) but returned it as the screen was too dark and I didn’t like the thick bezels, but that seemed to cope with OK, though it was a tad heavy. Would a chromebook be of use? I’m hoping not pay more than £600 tops.
Hope that makes sense and apologies if this is in the wrong section. Thanks in anticipationThis conversation is currently closed to new comments.

Depends on what software you want to run

In reply to Chromebook/laptop to run midi
Windows Notebooks run Windows and run all Software written for Windows which is the majority in use today.
Chromebooks run a form of Android which doesn’t run Windows Software. So unless the software you want to use was specifically written to run on Droid no you can not use a Chromebook.
Google may have a app which does a similar thing but it also may require you to be Online when you use it which is what makes Chrome Books so much cheaper than Windows Note Books.
