The CHEAPEST and MUST-BUY Laptop for Shoppers in Cameroon / Africa

SHARE:

The cheapest and recommended laptop in 2019 for consumers in Cameroon, Africa and India. Spend less and get more decent specs

In Cameroon, offline shopping used to be a thing of the past, but it is no longer the case today. It is common practice for online shoppers to flood various WhatsApp or Telegram groups in search of laptop or phone deals. However, this has drawbacks as very often than not, warranty and after sale issues could potentially be a problem.

 The CHEAPEST and MUST-BUY Laptop 2019

I took time out to go through laptop deals in major online websites and also offline stores in Douala, Yaounde and Bamenda (major cities in Cameroon) to ascertain the best and cheapest laptop with all features baked into it for a good computing experience. This was not limited to Cameroon because I also took a look at other online marketing sites in other African countries / India. I then reached a  conclusion that there could only be one buy that will suit the needs of a day to day consumer who needs a brand new laptop without worries. This is the Lenovo Ideapad V330.


DISPLAY

The specific model is V330-15IKB. This is a 15.6-inch laptop. The screen is standard with decent viewing angles. However, the resolution is a mere 1366x768. This is very much standard for this price category, so no complains.

HARDWARE AND PERFORMANCE

The processor is the Intel Celeron 3060U, a dual-core with a base frequency of 1.1 GHz. With the help of Intel's turbo boost technology, this can go right up to 2.48GHz. Hence, handling of basic computing tasks should not be an issue. Combine with the processor is the graphics processor which is the Intel HD 620. This is not a beastly graphics unit but is however capable of handling the latest games at lower framerates.


STORAGE

A 500GB hard drive is what we get. Understandably, there's a lack of an SSD which could speed up boot times and performance. However, it can easily be upgraded. The hard drive itself has a decent spin of 7200rpm. The RAM is 4gb DDR4 which is soldered. There is a free slot to provide RAM upgrades to up to 20GB. Hence, you can easily upgrade the RAM after purchase.

SOFTWARE AND PERFORMANCE

On the software side of things, it comes preloaded with Windows 10 64bit, Microsoft's latest operating system. Lenovo, as usual, has pre-installed applications to make the laptop use a pleasant one. Combined with 4Gb, the experience should be ok, since Windows 10 is optimized for PCs running on 2GB RAM.


AVAILABLE PORTS

There are sufficient ports. Three USB 3.0 ports (one always on port) have been cramped in, together with an HDMI port, VGA, Ethernet for wired internet and a headphone/mic port.

CONNECTIVITY

For connectivity, you get the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 which delivers high speeds over wifi on both wifi bands. Bluetooth is a bonus and is included. The ethernet port comes in handy in a situation where there are no wireless connectivity options.

PRICE in CAMEROON

The Lenovo IdeaPad currently sells from 200000FCFA to 275000FCFA in most online and offline stores. The cheapest deal I found was 153750frs. Using the coupon code MOBILEWEEKPLUS, you can save an extra 5500Frs. You can check the deal >>HERE<<.
