If you are about to join college or already enrolled in a Kenyan university, you need a laptop. While it’s almost impossible to survive without a laptop in a Kenyan university especially if you are a computer science student, it’s important to know the best laptop to buy.

10 years when I was in college I managed to buy a laptop from Nakumatt.I can attest that the laptop, a HP,served me well until I was able to afford a more expensive one. The reason I bought it from Nakumatt was simple, durability and sale warranty. Now, this brings a question, what factors do you consider before you purchase a laptop in Kenya? For me I usually go for the RAM, Memory capacity, the brand and processor. If a laptop has more than 500GB of memory, RAM of at least 4 and has a processor of at least i3,I will go for it.The price comes later after I have noted down features I am interested in.

As a student I know your pocket is not deep, which means affording a laptop of above Ksh 30,000 is not easy. The ideal laptop for you wil cost Ksh 20,000 to Ksh 30,000.If that’s your choice, I will advise you to go for the following brands:

  • HP
  • Dell
  • Lenovo
  • ASUS

If your parent can afford a more expensive laptop, then Apple laptop is the best.

Where to buy the laptop

If you want to buy a cheap laptop, the best places to buy include:

  1. Computer Planet
  2. PC World
  3. Safaricom
  4. Jumia
  5. Kilimall
  6. Biashara Street
  7. Ebrahim Electronics

I will advise that you buy from a popular shop, where you will be provided with a sale warrant. You should also avoid buying a used laptop.

If you are planning to order from Jumia or Kilimall, here is a list of the best laptop to buy with less than Ksh 40,000.
