A Modal answer with band 7+

OK, 6 months ago, my old Dual Core laptop started to show problems with battery backup and processing data, so I had decided to buy a new MacBook Pro which has 12 hours backup, 16 Gigabytes memory, 512 Gigabytes storage memory and the i7 processor fast enough to load multiple applications simultaneously. My old Lenovo laptop really can't hold a candle to this MacBook. I was dying to buy this and I had also started to save money for it.

Surprisingly, for my birthday my wife bought it for me. I was really in the state of euphoria when I saw a packed box of a laptop on my study table. It was the icing on the cake when I opened the box and saw the configuration of a laptop which was exactly the same what I thought to buy. It wasn't only a surprise gift for me, but also lots of love from my spouse. What's more, as this was my birthday, I throw a party and invited to all my close friends and relatives. I show to them the MacBook, all congratulated me for this laptop.

Overall, I can say that I will never forget about this surprise gift and I will always remember how much my wife loves me. I will try to keep this laptop in a mint condition.
