Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing with regard to the problem with my laptop that I purchased a few months ago from your store. As it comes with a 2-year warranty, I am hoping that you would fix my laptop as soon as possible.

A week ago, while I was working on my laptop to finish building a website for one of my clients, it stopped working and I had to restart it. This same problem reappeared a day later and now it is happening more frequently than before. Restarting the laptop does not work as it used to be and I am completely stuck.

I work from home as a freelancer and this laptop is utterly important for my work. My reputation to my client is on the line and I cannot do anything without my laptop. Unfortunately, I do not have an alternative computer in which I can work for the time being. Moreover, I have several files and tools on my laptop that I frequently use to finish my projects.

Since I do not have access to the IT team to check my computer, I need you to send someone immediately to fix it. In case of any difficulty in commuting to my place, I can bring the laptop to your store. Please let me know what suits you best.

Expecting to hear from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

David Fincher
