What does it take to get a cheap laptop in Nigeria? How low can the prices go for the laptops that are locally available?

When it comes to buying brand new laptops in Nigeria, the prices can be quite expensive, especially for the young people who are mostly in need of them. The younger generation tend to have a better understanding of how computers and the internet works and so the demand for laptops is higher on their side.

A brand new laptop sells from at least $300(N48,000) on US websites but it sells for up to $450(N72,000) in the Nigerian market and this is quite considerable when you consider the fact that it is brand new, comes with a warranty and also comes bundled with a Windows operating system. However, for most Nigerian youths, the price tag of N72,000 is way too high.

In a country where the minimum monthly wage is about N18,000 and middle income people earn less than N50,000 per month, asking a family to spend more than that for their kid is probably going take food off a lot of tables.

How cheap could laptops then be bought in Nigeria? How much are most people willing to pay for laptops at least?

Well, a visit to the computer village or local laptop dealers will show you that the price range for best selling laptops range from around N25,000 to N40,000 and this is mostly for Chinese Android laptops and used American/UK laptops.

Yeah, there is a hug market for used and cheap laptops in Nigeria but not much for brand new laptops.
