SAS University... Chromebook?

Hi all,

I have a chromebook and was curious if there's any possibility to use SAS University with it.  I know it's a stretch after reading the technical requirements but I still thought I would ask.

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Re: SAS University... Chromebook?

I wanted to follow up with this.  Great news!  You can indeed run SAS University Edition via accepted web browsers.  I've been running SAS University using Google Chrome on an HP Chromebook.  I would recommend running SAS UE via the cloud if you have a netbook or a chromebook.  To set it up is pretty straightforward.  Use the http://www.sas.com/en_us/software/university-edition.html website to set up SAS UE via the cloud and tada!  SAS programming in a web browser!  

 

I'd recommend reading the supporting documentation to help get started.

Re: SAS University... Chromebook?

Hi SASMike,

When i bought the chromebook, I had the same concern. I didn't want to carry another laptop just because I wanted to run few SAS programs for practice. If you have another laptop/PC where you have already installed SAS univ edition, here is what you can do.

1. Install Chrome remote desktop on both (PC and CB).

2. Login with same Id on both places. This way Google connects both your devices over internet.

3. Adjust power settings on your PC so that it doesn't go to sleep mode when you leave it idle or close the lid.

4. Now leave your PC running and use it using CB from anywhere.

Hope this helps! Please let me know if you come up with a better solution.
