Chromecast Minimum System Requirements
https://support.google.com/chromecast/answer/3209990?hl=en

"The Google Cast extension is available on all platforms, including Chrome OS, Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. There are no specific hardware requirements in order to install or use the Google Cast extension.

However, casting video from a tab of your Chrome Browser has specific requirements depending on your chosen quality settings. Systems that do not meet these minimum requirements will be limited to projecting web pages, images and slideshows, and will not work well for video content. A strong Wi-Fi connection both on Chromecast and your computer is also required for good performance. "

No, I afraid not. I know that it isn’t exactly the same thing, but you could use Miracast as a substitute. I would be surprised if RT support is ever added to Chromecast, in light of its relatively low adoption rate.

The Apple TV is like that old friend from college--pretty cool, but always crashing in your living room. Its inconsistent stability, frustratingly anemic content offering, and lack of rich input methods have kept it from becoming what Apple enthusiasts long swore it would be: the iPhone of TV set-top boxes. Though its interface and hardware continue to evolve, the little black box faces real competition from faster-moving players that are offering more, like the Roku 3 and the new Fire TV from Amazon.
