Many people have been asking us which Nigeria’s online stores is the best to buy their laptop in Nigeria. Perhaps this is to help them get the best deal.

But the simple answer to that question is that there is no perfect store. Here is why. Some store may give you a low price today, then a higher price tomorrow. Some will even tell you that your favourite laptop will be delivered in 5 days, only for you to realize that the laptop is not even available anymore at their store. But we believe that you can still make the right decision if you read this article carefully.

Today, there are many online stores in Nigeria. Notable Nigeria’s online stores that sell quality laptops are Jumia, Konga, SLOT, and Kara.

But before buying your laptop in any of these e-commerce stores, we think you need to ask yourself this question, “why should I buy my laptop in Nigerian online stores?” If you are bereft of ideas, here are some good reasons why you should consider buying your laptop in online stores.

One, it is more convenient and less stressful than going to the market to buy it. Another good reason is that it saves time. If you are the type that don’t have time to go to Computer Village or any popular markets in Nigeria, you will be better off buying your laptop in some of online stores we’ve just mentioned.

Besides having a lot of good reasons to buy it at online stores, you need to take some other smart decisions. In order words, we think to avoid any stories that touch the heart, you need to consider 6 things before going ahead to purchase your desired laptops from any Nigerian online stores.

1. THE RELIABILITY OF THE ONLINE STORE

With many online stores in Nigeria springing up every now and then, you need to be careful when buying laptops online. While some popular online stores in Nigeria like Jumia, Konga, SLOT and Kara are already known brands, you won’t be hurt still to find out which is the most credible. Questions like, which of these stores offers the best computer deals and how are Nigerian buyers reacting to their services on their sites, should help you make an informed decision. Also, you should check if the online store offers a warranty of at least 12 months before you buy from them.

2.ONLINE SHOPPING BEST PRICE

If you’re considering buying a laptop online in Nigeria, you should check for the online stores in Nigeria that offers best deals on computers. Sure, you wouldn’t want to hurriedly settle for a laptop at a given price only to realize that another online store offers much less price for the same product. So the best decision would be to do a price comparison.. This will help you to get your desired laptop that fits your budget. The best price comparison site is Kiniprice

3.BATTERY LIFE

Are you kidding me! Do you want to get a laptop whose battery is as good as dead? Of course not. A good battery makes you enjoy using your laptop. If your laptop battery only lasts for a few minutes, you won’t enjoy it at all. Before you even finish your task, the battery is dead. And if you always work on your laptop for long hours, you should get a laptop with the best battery life.

4.PROCESSOR

Before you decide to buy your laptop, you should try to know the processor it comes with. The central Processing Unit (CPU) is the power of a laptop. The bigger and stronger it is, the better the laptop’s performance. If you buy a laptop with core i3, core i5 or core i5 Intel processor, you won’t bother about loading speed at all. And working very fast on many tasks at the same time becomes easy.

5.RAM CAPACITY

Do you want a laptop that loads fast even when you run powerful software, huge files and graphics on it? Then consider its Random Access Memory (RAM) before shopping online in Nigeria for it. RAM helps you store vital information on your laptop for a short while. So if you’re a student buying a laptop with at least 2 GB of RAM is okay. But if you’re a business person or graphic designer, you need a laptop with at least 4GB RAM. In any case, a big RAM size would ace your productivity.

Hello there!

These tips are helpful to those of us searching for a good Laptop.

Speaking of the Laptop search, I've actually been on it for long now, and really, I've not been able to settle with an option. Well, it's not that I'm super choosy when it comes to Laptops but the thing is, I have preferences that are bit unusual (as someone pointed out to me).

Firstly, I'm a student, so my Power needs aren't all that high when it comes to Laptops. I'm a fan of bleeding edge processors but I don't overly need them, I'm a 'productivity' person who loves Using Word processors, Presentation Software, and other productivity softwares everyday, I just need a laptop which can keep up with that (and some more). I also like a bit of style and statement to my tech, so laptops with stylish and fashionable designs are a deal breaker for me.

So, My options are down to a few Laptops; The Microsoft Surface, and Huawei Laptops (I'm not gonna buy a MacBook). The issue here isn't the budget, as I plan according to what I want to buy. I'm really concerned since these Laptop Brands aren't all that popular in my locality,aftersales services might not be readily available. Do you advise that I just go ahead and make the jump?

Hi

From your response, since the budget is not an issue and since you already have two options in mind, we advise you to get either the Microsoft Surface or the Huawei Laptop. Even though these laptops are not very popular in Nigeria, they can last you for an average of 3 years if you maintain them properly. But remember this. If you one way or the other damage the laptop, it may be very difficult for you to repair it due to the scarcity of its spare parts.

Good luck!
