Looking for a Cheap Laptop in Nairobi
I meet a lot of people looking for a cheap laptop in Nairobi. Yes, let’s face it. Times are hard and if you need a laptop and you don’t have a lot of money then you are bound to check whether you can get a laptop at cheaper price. Let me take this deeper.
Reasons Why People Look for a Cheap Laptop in Nairobi?
#No 1: Limited Budget- We cannot deny that we are living at hard economic times. Most of us hustlers and Sufferers as we are famously called now have to really check our budgets before spending. Most of the good new laptops range from 40k and you do not have that kind of money. So if you can get a refurbished laptop which can perform the same functions, then you will be more than happy to take the deal.
#No 2: You are buying it for Someone- Your brother or sister has been requesting you for a laptop to be using at home to train with. S/he has recently completed computer packages and they want to keep practicing. Then getting a cheap laptop is a good alternative because you really do not need to buy an expensive laptop for someone to just practice packages with. It would be a waste of money.
#No. 3: What the Laptop? Answering this question will give you the exact functionality that you are looking for. There is no need of getting a computer that has so much processing power as an i3 and you will not be using it or Bluetooth and you will never use it. If you are a writer, you only need a word processing program and a web browser. Personally, I have a web cam which i rarely use but when I was buying the laptop I did insist that it should be there. I would have saved 5K if only I knew what I know now. So my advice is that you should know why you want the machine and then look for those features. Mostly you will get that most of these low specs laptops you will get them on the cheap.
Where Do you get a Good Cheap Laptop in Nairobi?
You have decided that you have 20k to spend on a laptop. The Big question is, where do you get this laptop in Nairobi? Most of the times you turn to the internet and contact the top three websites that appear on the site. I had the same scenario, I searched and found these guys.. Tarakilishihub. I just called and asked if they had a second hand computer. Their courtesy amazed me and I visited their shop at Rahimtulla Trust building. I saw the laptop, was satisfied and only paid when I saw the laptop working. You can check them out and see for yourself.
Beware of Crooks
Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who claim to be selling laptops. Fraud is everywhere and it has crept into the laptop market as well. So be alert on people asking you to send money when you have not seen the laptop of they insist on meeting you on the streets to make the exchange. Insist also on getting the machine tested and confirm the specs that you were told. You can have someone who understands computers accompany you if you are not so well versed in that area.
