Basically your chrome book is a potato.  However there may be hope.  I believe that chrome books can install and run Android software.  If this is true, you may be able to run the Lumiya viewer which is a paid android app.  Disclaimer: I have no idea if this actually works for a chrome book but many are happy with it on Android.

We all are SL residents, just like you.  This is a resident-to-resident Answers service.  You are not talking to Lindens.  None of the SL viewers or third party viewer will work on a Chrome book.  It's simply too small and underpowered to handle SL.  If you want to enter SL, you'll have to use a real computer.  The viewers do work quite well on laptops, though.   I have used mine for years when I am not at home with my desktop.

There's a way you can get SL on your Chromebook.  There is a subscription service called Bright Canopy.  If you pay for this service, it will run SL on its own computers, and you can access it through any web browser.

The reason Chromebook is not supported is the hardware cannot handle the graphics load. Chromebook is only good for Facebook games. It isn't the Lab that is the problem it is the lack of hardware in the Chromebook.

I've seen someone do this, so it is possible. They are just limited to whatever Lumiya can do.
