Sample answer 2

In this modern time, it is almost impossible for anyone to do any work without a laptop especially people like me who works and study together.

So, just before two months I have bought a Mac Book pro Series Laptop.

Before that, I had a laptop but that was not so adequate for my task and it was really arduous to perform any task instantly and smoothly. And that was the only reason why I needed to buy a new laptop for me.

I have been using this new laptop for around one and a half months.

As far as the handiness of this laptop is concerned, I find it useful in numerous ways.

In the first place, it is light weighted so I could carry the laptop to my classes for presentations which makes my work easier.

The operating system is latest and updated with best graphics card namely Nvidia 7000 which gives me cut edge experience while using it.

Secondly, the laptop screen does not irritate eyes so I can use it constantly for hours. In addition, the backlit keyboard helps to work in lower lighting condition.

So, I can work even in darker mood with no chances for any mistakes while working in a darker room. Previously, I was not much familiar with the backlit keyboard and now it seems very interesting especially in night.

In addition, the touch display is made with Corning Gorilla Glass which gives me very smooth experience of touch screen and it has made it stronger than other brand’s laptop which comes in this price range. The large display is another boon for me.

Earlier, I used a desktop which had a 14-inch LED screen. So, everything appeared very smaller in size and shape even some times I had to zoom everything when it seems blurring. And frequent use of that pc was very irritating for me.

Honestly speaking, I am very thankful of myself that I had decided to buy this laptop because this made my life very easy as compared to previous time. When I used to carry heavy and very irritating laptop.

After using the best feature of this laptop I am very glade. And I hope that, this would help me for long time so I don’t think that in future I need to invest much for new laptop until 5 to 6 years.
