few questions about chromebooks

that new 249 chromebook looks really nice.. super stylish look, no fan, so no overheating when it sits on my bed.. man i WANT to love it.. im just not sure about chrome OS.. i dont do a ton on the computer.. but i defiantly want to have my circle of things

video player - i know it can play .avi and .mp4, but a lot of my files are in .mkv.. is there any third party video player, or chrome app that can play mkv, or any other file types?

does it have .FLAC support for music? (not too big of a deal)

does it have flash?

is there a way to play minecraft on it?

can you download torrents on it?

can you unzip a .zip or .rar folder?

i can answer a few of these.

I DONT know if it can play .mkv files
I DONT know if the music player supports .FLAC files

I DO know it supports flash.
I DO know you can play the online version of Minecraft. (the old version that is web based)

I DONT know if it can download torrents, since all programs have to be downloaded via the google store, and i really doubt there is a torrent program on there.

I DO know you can unzip zip and rar files and view them on Google Drive.

Hope this helps a little.

I thought I saw a torrent app. Just not sure if it does what you're looking for it to do. Maybe it is new.

To unzip files on a Chromebook, you'll need to find the . Zip file using the "Files" app. You can use this same app to zip files on your Chromebook as well. Once you've unzipped a file on your Chromebook, you can copy and paste its contents to any other folder on the computer.
