Hi Mike, 

We've had a few folks at our Seattle mapathons using ID on Chromebooks with success.

But if one starts with a clean login session or closes most other tabs, I expect iD will work absolutely fine on any Chromebook. I've used it on both a low-powered Chromebook and on a medium-high-powered Chromebook, and both have been very usable.
