This ESL podcast is about what to look for when buying a new computer. As always, there is a lot of very useful vocab which can be used in daily life.
A: What’s going on?
B: I’ve had it with my old computer. It’s a total piece of junk. I’m getting a new one.
A: Are you getting a Mac or staying with the PC?
B: I know a lot of people swear by the Mac, but I’m so used to a PC that I think I’ll just stick with it.
A: I like the Mac because it crashes a lot less and has a lot less viruses.
B: I don’t blame you. I can definitely see how it would be better. I just can’t be bothered to learn how to use one. I also know there’s less software for the Mac.
A: I hear you. What specs are you getting?
B: I want a huge hard drive for all my downloads. I need to get a big monitor to watch movies on.
A: What about RAM and processor?
B: My needs aren’t too great for those. I don’t use too many applications simultaneously. I pretty much just do word processing and surf the net.
