Most expensive laptops you can buy online in South Africa

Over the last two years the rand has weakened significantly – from R10.30 per USD to the current ±R14.

South Africa’s weak currency means that anything which is imported, like computer equipment, has become more expensive.

If you are looking for a high-end laptop, for example, you may have to pay thousands more than a couple of years ago.
