Moi University has an assembly facility that has, for the first time, released tech products that can be used by locals. The assembly line is said to have cost US$5 million, employees 300 direct workers, although it has the capacity of accommodating 1000 employees, and has 12 technicians who are armed to address issues about the devices. The number of people working there can only grow if there is a market for the devices being churned out.

So, before we list the devices, it is worth noting that the laptops will be available to the masses in the next three weeks, and we have no definitive calendar of the other machines. The three portable computers have all the bells and whistles of modern laptops, with backlit keyboards, 360° hinges, touchscreen support and ability to doodle on the display with a stylus.

What’s more, the computers are put together with the help Microsoft, the software corporation that has made a name for itself with products like Office and Windows, as well as Intel that designs chipsets.



Also, besides the laptops, the Moi University factory has mini-PCs and desktops. The institution of higher learning says it has servers in place as well, but we did not get to see them during the launch event held just the other day.

Without keeping you here for long, here are the devices that were announced, including laptops that will initially hit store shelves in the aforementioned 3-week timeline.

As mentioned, the laptops can be flipped back and forth depending on your work or entertainment flow. And yes, we know you can get better deals elsewhere because for the specs, the University is asking for a little too much money.

What do y’all think about these products?

  1. Good progress for our University. Congratulations be in order, however they are quite overpriced if you ask me. Considering Market price for a normal laptop or PC bought on Jumia, Ebay, Amazon or even AliExpress would be half the price. They better have something else special otherwise as a student they are too costly. Additionally can they add something like a free laptop tracking hardware system since as a student we lose laptops on a daily basis to theft? At-least that would make them unique for the price.


  2. That’s some good progress as well as initiative from the university but then again whom are they targeting on the said laptops? For if they are targeting the students from the same university as well as other universities, then I believe that the items are marginally overprized! Truth is we will all praise them for the good work done but then again, the profit margin as well as the revenue sales will be lacking on one side.
