Minecraft for chromebooks?

I would like to be able to play Minecraft on my Chromebook! I have an account for minecraft and I cant play on here. Anyone know a website i can go to?

If your Chromebook still has Chrome OS on it (Google's operating system) then...

If your Chromebook still has Chrome OS on it (Google's operating system) then, as far as I was aware, you can't play minecraft on it without installing a Linux operating system along side Google's. (If you already have a Linux OS other than Chrome OS then you can find a regular tutorial) However (assuming you would like a solution for Chrome OS) I only looked into this a long time ago and, after some looking around, I found this:

It is still the case that you have to install a Linux OS along side Google's OS but this solution appears to be an elegant solution though I can't test it as I don't have a Chromebook of my own. It is also important to note that minecraft may not run smoothly as most Chromebooks don't have GPU's (graphics) designed for running Java based programs (or any none-google supported programs for that matter). Yet, as the website above mentions, this will only be a concern if your Chromebook uses an ARM processor.

I hope this is some help to you :D
