Genuine Laptops under KES 30,000 in Kenya

Best laptops under 30,000/= in Kenya

These are personal experiences.

In my lifetime, I have only bought two laptops and a desktop. All through store walk-ins, queries and direct purchase. My first laptop was a brand new Lenovo IdeaPad 305-15 – with the following specs – 15.6 inch wide screen, Intel core i5-5200U processor, storage – 1000 GB, 4 GB RAM, silvery outer cover, AMD Radeon graphics amongst other incredible features for a first laptop. In this purchase, I knew I got it right. And I walked out of Bright Technologies, Kimathi Street Nairobi feeling proud of my choice, not to mention how affordable the damn thing was. KES 50,000 ONLY. Plus 1 year warranty.

My second laptop purchase however, was a bit of a disappointment. An HP Folio 9470m with Intel graphics inside, Intel Core i5; 14” LED Matte, 500 GB storage and a 4 GB RAM. Not so bad a laptop right?

But that’s before you are told that it is refurbished, it does not have any warranty and worse, you are slapped with a receipt that says, “Goods ones sold cannot be reaccepted.” I held my laptop in my hand, with a sullen face, tempted to curse the sales lady, Margaret – that’s what her tag said then I thought, what good would it be dragging her cute face into my murky chaos? The way I don’t get scruples creating scenes and scolding people in public. Ha! She was lucky I wasn’t in the moody. I left.

I left because I was to blame too. 

Why was I to blame? Because I didn’t ask about the warranty before making my payment? Again, let’s be rational, it wasn’t her fault that I didn’t ask to inspect if the product was new before agreeing for installation, was it? I walked out of Computer Village International, a long Tsavo lane, a hungry and disappointed man. How I wish I had gone back to Bright Technologies. I’d have paid more but at least they’d have ensured that I got what I paid for. 

My point is, Bright is just one of the physical places to get genuine products.

Your next question should then be, where else can I get the best laptops for the best prices?

I say, don’t shop in those mini stalls in Luthuli, Tsavo or Latema Avenues – buy your laptops from reputable shops in the CBD. You won’t regret making that purchase. However, if you don’t have the time for walk-ins, you should buy online. But again make sure to buy from reputable stores like Jumia and Kilimall.

Not only do they ensure that you get value for your money by inspecting products for quality at pre-qualification stage of sourcing, they also have flexible return policies that protect buyers, for wrong purchases – besides warranty. And still, to ensure that you make the right purchases for the lowest prices available, we have researched and made a list of the best laptops under KES 30,000 which you can buy online, in Kenya.
