Odukar store, a Tech online retail outlet is listing Chromebooks for the very first time. Chromebooks are lightweight, portable, secure, internet-ready and affordable laptops designed for education. They run on Chrome OS, an operating system based on Linux and spearheaded by Google.
We have reviewed Chromebooks here specifically the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go and made some recommendations too. However, most of the products can only be shipped from Amazon and other U.S-based retailers who don’t ship directly to Uganda. Odukar store is taking away the hustle by offering the same products for Ugandans at affordable price points.
Listed Chromebooks start from as low as Ugx 980,000 with the HP 11a Chromebook. This laptop features an 11.6″ anti-glare HD display, is powered by the MediaTek MT8183 processor clocked at 2GHz, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC Storage. Closely behind this laptop is the ASUS C223 Chromebook with more or less similar specs at Ugx 20,000 more. They laptops have an all-day battery, boot really fast and weigh the same as a loaf of bread making them easy to carry around. Don’t be deceived by the seemingly low-spec sheet on these laptops. Chrome OS is lightweight operating system designed to run low end hardware without sacrificing performance.
