Buy laptop and desktop computers in Uganda: Here’s a complete list of vendor-certified shops

Take a stroll on Kampala-Jinja road in the Central Business District one sunny day; I guarantee you will be amazed at the endless back-to-back computer shops showcasing name brands like Acer, HP, Dell, even Apple.
