New smartphone brands are frequently entering the Nepali market. Now, Ripple, a Nepal-based OEM has introduced a laptop in the domestic market. And the best thing about it is that it’s fully customizable. So, let’s take a closer look at the Ripple Artifact including its specs, features, availability, and price in Nepal.
Ripple Artifact Overview:
The Ripple Artifact is the company’s first laptop that is available in Nepal. Like I mentioned earlier, Ripple is a Nepali company that assembles various parts of a computer to create a new product. The newly released Ripple Artifact features an Intel Core i5-10300H processor and GTX 1650 Ti graphics card.
In terms of screen size, it has a 15.6-inch IPS display with FHD resolution. You also get a screen with a refresh rate of 144Hz. The dimensions of the laptop are 359.5 x 238 x 21.9mm, and it weighs 1.85 kg.
You can also choose between Windows and Linux as your operating system. In terms of memory, there is 8GB DDR4 RAM (@2666 MHz) and a 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe solid-state drive. This laptop has a 49 Wh battery. More intriguingly, you have the choice of upgrading or downgrading the device. That is, you can tailor the laptop to your specific requirements. Ripple has already mentioned that the laptop can be customized, and there is an option to configure the processor as well.

Can it compete against others?
As aforementioned, the laptop market in Nepal is dominated by multiple international brands. However, one thing that it’s missing is a new player in the industry. You can see how Chinese smartphone companies were able to gain the trust of tech enthusiasts all over the world; mainly because they were able to come up with comparatively affordable products with a feature set to match.
Starting a business necessitates a lot of determination and skill in order to achieve success. Ripple has stated that they are offering less costly alternatives to products with comparable specifications. And, if it continues to sell laptops at a reasonable price, I believe Ripple will definitely succeed in the Nepali market.
