At A Glance

Despite the fact that more and more small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are developing in Africa and have growing technology needs, the penetration of computers in Africa is still very low. This is due in part to the low presence of major PC manufacturers on the continent as well as a lack of affordable options suitable to customer’s personal and business needs.

PEBL’s vision is to change this situation by manufacturing tailor-made computers that fit each customer’s identity by giving them the possibility to customize their machines with the highest quality hardware and software components.

PEBL is a high-performance, small form-factor computer uniquely configurable by the customer. Leveraging on the natural leap-frogging movement into the digital revolution, that Africa has adopted with respect to the latest technology, PEBL offers access to the latest and superior-in-tech component options (Intel chips, solid-state drives, 4K graphics, USB 3.0 and Type-C ports, built-in dual band Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity etc.) to be distinctively implemented in a computer that is designed for your precise personality and needs. Specifically designed to execute a novel heat management system with very low energy consumption – PEBL is manufactured in Namibia, each with an intrinsic touch of Africa in their unique glass top-panels, crafted from sand sourced in Africa.

Aiming at the global market, PEBL computers are the results of the Global Africanism that translates the innovation, creativity, and cultural authenticity that are required to become the pride of anyone with African heritage – which essentially is the whole world.

PEBL is available globally. Clients can order their uniquely customized PEBLs on the company’s website and have them delivered to their doorstep. With it’s conveniently small size, 11.8cm x 11.8cm, PEBL computers are portable and elegant, each with a unique identity.
