He first purchased a mini-laptop which according to him did not meet his technical needs appropriately. He has gone an extra mile of buying a high tech laptop worth 900$ US dollars which he calls “all under one roof” meaning he can do all that he has been dreaming to do from taking photographs, videos, editing them and sending to friends to watching live TV news bulletin on his laptop.
