First weekend of December, Intel will hold a three day technology bonanza that will have 7 vendors exhibit and sell devices powered by Intel chips. The vendors are Dell, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, Acer, Asus and iSurf and they will showcase their 2014 product line-up which will also be available for sale.
This is the first event of this kind that will be held at Sarit Centre in Nairobi, from dates 5th to 7th of December. Consumers will be able to come see and interact with new products from the 7 vendors in what will serve as a discovery and purchase platform. They will also get to interact with the technical teams of each of these companies at the bonanza to get to know much more about the products that will be on sale.
Intel’s General Manager for East Africa, Mr. Danie Steyn said, “We welcome all Kenyan consumers to come to the event and take advantage of the competitive offers that PC manufacturers and retailers have put together. Consumers will be able to enjoy great discounts on a variety of products and for those that cannot afford to make full payments, we are working closely with financiers to offer affordable loans on IT devices bought at the event.”
Intel and partners intend to make arrangements for financing of the devices available for sale like “buy now, pay later” packages offered by financiers at the event venue. Loans will be processed within 24 hours for purchasers with 12 month payments options. Intel has in the past participated in similar projects to get more laptops owned by students, the previous one involved universities where students qualified for discounts subsidized by the Ministry of Education.
Intel will also demonstrate at the event what it means to have devices powered by their chips and the various applications available within these devices that make computing good easier across industries like automotive, education and business. “We do not simply sell technology; we create practical solutions that have a positive impact on the lives of those that come in contact with our technology,” added Steyn.
