Ninjatrader on Chromebooks

I am in the market for a new laptop and have run across the new Chrombooks. Does anyone know if you can load and run Ninjatrater 7 or 8 on the new Chromebooks?

as far as I know chromebooks come with mobile operating systems ie they are by default not compatible with Win7 or 8 or MacOS.

However as there is no fully functional mobile application of Ninjatrader, so I fear that would make it impossible to run NT on a chromebook.

edit: just to clarify, chromebooks are no "real laptops" for that matter. see here

I use a Sony Vaio with a SSD for my main trading.

Get the best screen offered and best resolution available.

Another good choice is the MSFT Surface Pro.
(I also have one as does Big Mike)
I like it for being able to see Ninjatrader on a very portable device.

SSD are the best way to go and a fast processor what ever you get.

Thanks for the replies, didn't think Chromebooks would be compatible with many programs out there.

Does the SSD take the place of the hard drive? If so how do you load windows back on to the SSD?

SSD = Solid State Drive.

It is your hard drive.
It performs faster (like RAM )
It has no moving parts like a regular drive so the access times are faster.

My windows 7 boots from Dead off to Desktop in less than 20 seconds.
SSD work just like regular drives.
Think of them as a large flash drive inside your PC.

I use an Acer Chromebook for browsing (on it now) and I love it - BUT it runs it's own ChromeOS which is not compatible with either Windows or Android interfaces, so the only realistic option for NinjaTrader is to use one of the RDP protocol packages like Chrome Remote Desktop for basic access to a remote PC, just for monitoring positions or similar.

Travel Well

Just use RDP (remote desktop) and then you can use a Chromebook or whatever you want, and login to your workstation that runs NinjaTrader.

You could combine this with something like a VPS from @sam028 (Speedy Trading Servers) and can login from anywhere (work, home, subway etc).

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
