A Nepal-based OEM laptop brand Ripple has launched its latest offering, the Genos series. The series will comprise two models from the brand namely, Ripple Genos and Ripple Genos Pro. The brand earlier released a couple of gaming laptops under ‘Ripple Artifact series’ in the market as well and now has extended its product portfolio with the latest addition.
The Ripple brand has stepped into a competitive market that is heavily dominated by Chinese tech manufacturing companies. However, the brand has tried to bring tough competitors into the market to go head-to-head with the leading brand in Nepal with their effort to bring top-notch specs and reasonable pricing. The Nepali brand is involved in assembling various parts of a computer to provide additional options for the consumers in Nepal.
Unlike the previous offering by Ripple, the about-to-launch Genos series comes as a premium offering. This particular series is focused on solid performance and not just a regular gaming laptop. Meanwhile, the two models in the series have minimal but essential differences it i.e. they are installed with different CPUs and GPU, which we will get to in detail in a while.
