Everyday dialogues

Hi, friends!

Being an English teacher I have a lot of useful material for this group. I will be posting everyday dialogues here and you may ask me any questions. Hope, it will be helpful.

So, here is the first one:

 

 I got a new computer


Bill: I got a new computer yesterday.

Robert: You got a new computer?

Bill: Yes, a new notebook computer.

Robert: Why didn't you get a desktop computer?

Bill: The notebook is light, and has a battery, so I can use it anywhere. I can use it on the train or the bus.

Robert: Isn't the keyboard too small to use?

Bill: It's compact, but I'll get used to it.

Robert: I think large keyboards are easier to use than small ones. Also, desktop computers are more powerful than notebooks.

Bill: That's true, but my notebook computer is powerful enough for me.

Robert: Aren't notebooks more expensive than desktop computers?

Bill: Yes, desktop computers are usually less expensive, but notebook computers are portable. I can use my notebook in any room, and when I'm done, I can put it away. You can't put away a desktop computer .

Robert: That's true, but my desktop computer doesn't take too much space. It's an iMac.

Bill: That's a cool computer. I bet my Windows notebook was cheaper than your iMac

Robert: You get what you pay for.

Bill: Funny.

 

You can also say "laptop" (notebook) and just "desktop"

    A: You got hit by a car? How?

    B: Well, I was crossing the street and a car came around the corner pretty fast.

    A: Did you break anything else?

    B: Thanks. I'll be alright.

    A: Hey, now's my chance to beat you in basketball.
