School and office work and tasks like creating documents, spreadsheets, and video editing require a laptop or a computer. A decent one. Even gaming and coding, and in fact, these two need powerful machines.

But buying a new laptop is hard because it is expensive, and you don’t want to waste your money on a wrong or broken tech gadget. There is also more to consider, like storage, processing speed, stylishness, and brand – some people would prefer HP over Apple’s MacBooks.

Many laptop shops wait until Black Friday, after Christmas, or until the end of the year to give mouth-watering promotion sales and deals, but not this one – ECB Technologies.

ECB is one computer shop that consistently offers low prices throughout the year across its stock of cutting-edge technology and it is not surprising to find laptops under 30k, Ksh20,000, negotiations to 10K… lol.

3. Kilimall

Everyone knows that Kilimall reigns supreme when it comes to online shopping at excellent prices, but we’ll be first to admit the issues in its delivery system.

If you are looking for a new laptop or a decent refurbished piece, you may find it in their online shop, but you will wait for days before receiving it at your doorstep or picking it up at the nearest Kilishop if you are outside Nairobi.

Orders fulfilled by Kilishop take three to nine days to be completed, 5-10 days for local dispatcher orders, and worse, up to 50 days when your ordered laptop is awaiting shipment.

Kilimall’s major computer and laptop brands are HP, Lenovo, and Dell. They also deal in their accessories and networking products like routers and modems.

Random laptop buying tip: Choose to buy a laptop or computer that runs on an operating system you are familiar with, between MacOS and Windows. For example, if you already have an iPhone, a MacBook will let you send texts with iMessage, and you can make FaceTime video calls. When you want to send photos taken from your camera or downloaded images on your files, it lets you access your iCloud photos. These two operating systems have never been the same. Also, check the repair shop near you; can they fix a 14-inch MacBook Pro with M3 Max?
