Q:
Can I use this with a chrome book?
Asked by: Neil Ritchie
A:
Hi Neil,

In theory you can but you cannot connect it with a USB lead you would need to try and flash it across via blue tooth.

Q:
Hi
Does this require a pc to work or can it be hooked up to a Mac?
Thanks
Asked by: Michelle
A:
Hi Michelle,

Thank you for your question, you would plug the micro:bit into a computer to download the code onto it but so long as you power it from a different source it does need to remain connected to the PC. You can connect to either a MAC or a windows machine.

Best Regards

Cullen
