A Modal answer with band 7+

Well, I buy items whenever I feel it is important to purchase. Among many electronic gadgets I bought recently, I'd like to talk about a MacBook that I bought on my birthday which is 11th February 2018. This MacBook has a retina display of 15" inch, 512 Gigabytes of flash storage and 16 Gigabytes of memory. You won't believe how lightweight is that laptop, just 1.2 kilograms.

Usually, whenever I purchase any costly item, first I do research on various online shopping portal as well as in the nearby stores. Before I bought it, I had compared and analysed plenty of laptops and finally, I ordered this MacBook on the official website of Apple. This is because to get a genuine laptop and they have also had some offers if buying on the anniversary of customers.

Although I had a functioning laptop, I bought the new one because that wasn't capable of running new graphics software which I required in my daily use. Another reason for buying this laptop is the new features introduced in this model are highly optimised for memory use. Furthermore, it has the battery backup of 12 hours which in my view is exceptionally useful to work anywhere you want. I am pretty much satisfied with the new MacBook especially because of Retina display which significantly contributes to reducing my eye strain. What's more, hmm yes it is a robust laptop, though it has fallen down a few times, it is in a mint condition.

I can say that this MacBook becomes indispensable for me now.
