Steam & Cloud Gaming on a Chromebook? | Acer Chromebook 516 GE (2023) Review

Reviewing Acer’s Chromebook 516 GE 2023, a gaming Chrome OS laptop which can run Steam games, stream them using Nvidia’s GeForce Now service and more! Is it worth buying a Chromebook for Steam or cloud gaming? Well, the Acer 516 GE did a great job with the online streaming and boasts impressively premium specs for a Chrome OS laptop. However, Steam shenanigans are still very much a work in progress.

GeForce Now is certainly the way to go here. Acer’s gorgeous 120Hz 16-inch display makes the Chromebook 516 GE great for streaming games. You’ve got an anti-ghosting keyboard, respectable ports selection and WiFi 6e support. Plus this Chrome OS laptop’s battery life is good for hours of gaming online.

I’ll be monitoring the Steam situation on Chromebooks, although right now the supported models are limited and the experience is dire. I’d definitely say get a Steam Deck for portable gaming instead!
