Re: [learningfromeachother] Assembling computers in Africa
- Its good idear to aseeble computers in Africa
and acording to me here in uganda
we have got many computer shops in the capital city
and when you look aroud most of them sale new
computers and others sale used computers
we have got few laptops sold here and those sold are
too expensive so
isuggest that afull set of computer is fine to be sold
and now the market is mainly on flat screen and
pentium iii,pentiumivand above that are on high market
but it needs when you have afull set computer if ot
then you have hard disk
although used laptops and new ones may be on market
will try to find out more
