Meet Lion Laptop — A Laptop Assembled at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.

Yes, that’s the name of the laptop.

The University of Nigeria, Nssukka (UNN) has finally announced its laptop assembly plant (located at the Nsukka Campus) after months of speculations.

According to reports, the assembly plant which has been projected to produce 100,000 laptops a year, was established to make laptops (Lion laptops, in this case) affordable for students and to create an avenue where engineering students in the university will develop and acquire further skills in laptop assembly.

Where this is a great initiative:
I can’t wait for the time when we’d celebrate a laptop/smartphone manufacturing plant in Nigeria. 
I get it, though:
As for the laptop specs/price, nothing has been officially disclosed yet. Although a look at the banner below shows that the laptop has a  15-inch screen paired with a 2GB or 4GB of RAM, 500GB of HDD and a Windows 10 OS.
What do you think? And how much would you be willing to pay for a Lion Laptop?

    This is great stuff though.
    “…how much would you be willing to pay…?
    Since it’s stated the laptops would be “…affordable for students”, $190 isn’t too bad is it?

    This is nice. Weird name, hopefully from assembly they would go into manufacturing.

  9. KingAbsolute says:

    Innovative. Proud of them. They should keep it up.

  10. ỌBÁDÁRÀ says:

    … WELL, THIS IS A GOOD ONE. HERE, YOU WILL NEVER SEE NANS, OR NLC OR TUC, OR THE WAILING 😩 WAILERS. WHEN GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING, THEY WILL BE ON SABBATICAL. I WILL BE WILLING TO PAY A MAXIMUM OF 120 000 NGN…

  11. Emerson says:

    Awesome news for Nigeria, gotta reconsider somethings now. I’ll be holding my money till I see the full specs, can’t have myself paying 60+k for an Intel Celeron or less
