Model Answer:

Recently I have bought a personal computer for my home use. I have spent a smart amount to get this one as it comes with a higher configuration than the former one. It looks nice and I am in love with the curved monitor. The overall performance of the computer is good so far.

I bought the computer because the old one became slow and eventually stopped working. I do not know how it happened. But it was a bad luck for me. I stored all of my necessary data and information on that computer. Besides, that device contained a notable number of movies and documentaries too. But I lamented on losing some project proposals and presentations from my office that I stored here. I have to prepare them again, and this is a tough task indeed. Based on all the grounds, I needed another computer for my use. 

The computer configuration was better than the former one. So, it was a costly device for me. I had to spend around 1400 euros to get this electronic device. I took a four-terabyte hard disk with eight GB ram. I extended the configuration so that I could use it for next five years. Though it was an expensive matter for me, I invested in it for my future because I will not get a computer every year.

I was happy with my computer, particularly its performance was splendid. The former one had a slow performance and there were some other troubles too. I was unhappy with the storage as well. But this time I have solved all the problems. Enjoying movies on the curved screen is a wonderful experience for me.
