For the first time in Nepal, recently an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) brand with the name Ripple was established. It had already launched a gaming laptop Artifact a few weeks ago. Now they are back with another device that goes with the name Ripple Artifact Pro. So, Let’s take a look at it.
Ripple is a new startup company that is moving forward with a predominant objective of fulfilling the aspiration of Nepalese people for gaming laptops. They design and assemble laptops in Nepal by bringing the majority of the parts from Germany. Their main objective is to build the first premium and cost-efficient laptops in Nepal. It is an authentic brand that provides features and specifications like popular International laptop brands. In addition to it, the price they are selling laptops at is very competitive which is generally 15-20% lower than other brands.
“We are working towards introducing few variants targeted towards students, gamers, creatives, and professional customers. The main aim is to promote local production in order to match international pricing and reduce the reliance and safety of Laptops from foreign countries.”
