Laptop-Sale Nepal

Electronic gadgets are one of the most selling items during the festive season, as different companies launch their latest models and also offer attractive schemes to entice customers. However, this festive season, the sharp rise in the dealer rate has impacted the sales of laptops.

According to domestic dealers, sales have not yet picked up in comparison to previous year’s season due to the increase in the dollar rate.
