Sample Answer

Purchasing something without actually having a clear idea about the same can lead to confusion and difficulties in handling the product. Well, I’ve had plenty of such experiences in the past. However, there was this one time when I finally gave into the hype and purchased an Apple MacBook laptop. Since I’d already heard about things from my friends who own the same laptop, I thought I could easily handle the same.

The one I was using before gave up on its life, and I was compelled to buy an upgraded model. I was enticed by the reviews and suggestions pouring in for Apple MacBook. So, I continued with my decision to buy it. All of this happened back in October 2020.

My first experience with this machine was pretty arduous and perplexing because it was the first time I was using an iOS product. Having been an ardent Android and Windows user, I never thought switching to something popular would be such a struggle.

The primary purpose of buying this laptop was for its efficient and smooth functioning. In comparison to Windows, a significant difference can be experienced. I had to search a lot, watch several tutorials, consult friends repeatedly, and spend a considerable amount of time on this machine to get a hold of it.

However, once I got used to Apple, I have comprehended why people boast about this brand so much. Believe it or not, Apple prioritizes quality over quantity. And that is what I encountered with this purchase.
