Laptops That Play Nice Using Kali Linux

Here are our recommended Kali Linux Laptops

Kali Linux Laptops

HP Chromebook

If you need a laptop just to get online and run a quick network scan then a Chromebook is a solid choice, and any of the laptops running on Kali below may work for you. However, if you need to conduct extensive image or video editing for example or play non-Chrome-based games, or there are other offline apps you regularly use, then you should think about another type of laptop. A recent review of this laptop concluded that The HP Chromebook 14 is “good at multitasking and performance and blasts a lot of volume, but competitors offer brighter displays and more battery life.” Remember that this review was not done running Kali Linux so tread carefully when being critical about that laptop review.

Samsung Chromebook

As Samsung releases its successor, the Chromebook 2, things have changed. Cheap laptops can be even thinner, even faster, even more powerful, even longer-lasting; the Chromebook 2 is all four. The opportunity has grown, too: these 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch laptops enter a market in which most of what most people do all day lives inside a web browser anyway.

Acer Chromebook

This laptop was wone of the first Chromebooks capable of running Android apps. This machine has a comfortable keyboard which makes it great for typing. Acer’s convertible also offers both a sleek, premium-looking design and 12 hours of battery life, so you can leave the charger at home. We are sure that if the Acer Chromebook runs Kali Linux as its’ primary operating system the battery life will be just the same if not longer. Of course it depends what pentesting/ hacking tools you are running.

ASUS Chromebook Flip

Whilst we do not have a review on how the ASUS Chromebook Flip works when hard booted to Kali Linux, what we do know is that there are several excellent reviews of this box here and here. This laptop can be considered as being inexpensive for a machine that has an aluminum body, touchscreen, hybrid hinge, and more than a dozen hours of battery life – something which will help you when you are out pentesting in the field.
