I'd steer away from Ebay if I were you....just get someone in the states to buy it then ship it to you.

Patia @snapdragon hio pesa upate laptop poa tax free..
Hii ni impossible Kenya.
For 279$,I can get a laptop with ryzen 3 2500u, 4gb ram, 256gb ssd on Amazon. If I hit 350$, the RAM gets to 8gb, the ssd is exchanged fora 1tb hdd and the processor a ryzen 5 2500u
For 400$, a Ryzen 5 2500, 8gb ram, 512gb ssd

Now let us look at Kenya. A laptop with 4gb ram, 128gb ssd and the first generation ryzen processor costs 60K! Hiyo ni 600$. Wtf!

To get ryzen 5, 8gb ram - in kenya you need 60K and above

To avoid so much drama go to Amazon n buy a new laptop. They are cheaper than in Kenya. Let Amazon do the shipping it takes at least 30 days. Check out the shipping fees around 12k for international buyers. Kenya along with Egypt, Nigeria and SA are the only countries in Africa where Amazon has presence. Alternatively use Kentex shipping its way cheaper (around ksh.1500 per Kg) and faster. Rem refurbished or second hand electronics attract 25% tax to reduce damping of electronic waste, so new ones are better. Again Amazon has great reviews on best sellers and can be trusted if you read the reviews well plus your own research.

wah, ati stolen goods

Yes! Or where do you think stolen laptops go? (and they are stolen all over including US). By the Serial number and internal tracking software, utashikwa when the laptop connects to the Internet. Via Interpol, utapatwa kwenu King'eero or even Wahundura!!
