ALEX: Can I help you?
SHERRY: Yes, I need to buy a computer for this semester.
I was told it is cheaper to buy computers here.
ALEX: Well, you heard right.
You can get an excellent deal on a new computer here.
We have great discounts for students.
SHERRY: I don't know much about computers.
But I know I want a desktop computer with a lot of memory. And I need a printer.
ALEX: Well, first let's consider your computer.
Here, for example, is a system I highly recommend--the Power Macintosh G3.
It comes with 64 megabytes of total memory.
SHERRY: Is that a lot? Sixty-four?
ALEX: Yes, it is. It should be enough for any student needs you might have.
What department are you in?
SHERRY: History.
ALEX: Well, so you will mostly be using word processing, for writing papers.
I recommend the Corel Word Perfect program for word processing.
We can talk about software later. Let's talk about your hardware first.
We have a special deal on right now.
I should tell you about it, as it only goes until next Tuesday.
If you buy one of these fifteen-inch color monitors with a Power Macintosh G3,
you can actually get 30 percent off the usual sale price.
SHERRY: Thirty percent?
ALEX: Yes.
SHERRY: Wow. That's really good.
And you think this is really a good system for a graduate student?
ALEX: Yes. It's an excellent system.
SHERRY: Hmm. Hey, wait. This has an Apple on it. Is this an Apple computer?
ALEX: Yes, it's a Macintosh. It's Apple. Macintosh and Apple are the same thing.
SHERRY: I don't want Macintosh. I want PC.
ALEX: I'm sorry, but our university computer center only sells Macintosh equipment.
SHERRY: What? Are you serious?
ALEX: Yes.
SHERRY: But nobody uses Macintosh!
ALEX: That's not true.
Most of the students and professors in the university here use Macintosh.
They find it is better for writing and word-processing,
and that is what students mostly do. May I ask where you're from?
SHERRY: Yes, I'm from Taiwan.
ALEX: Well, I know that in most Asian countries Apple is not very popular.
But here in America, especially in universities and publishing companies,
Apple is very commonly used.
SHERRY: But I need a computer that can handle writing in Chinese.
ALEX: There are several Chinese writing programs you can use with Macintosh.
Chinese is no problem for Apple.
SHERRY: Hmm.
I think I should ask some of my friends for advice before I make a decision.
I'm sorry.
ALEX: No, don't be sorry. It's reasonable to ask your friends.
But believe me, most of the students here in the university--
Asian students included--most of them use Apple.
SHERRY: Well, thanks for your advice. I will probably come back later.
ALEX: You're very welcome. Here is my card, if you need any help.

亚历克斯:我可以帮你吗?
雪莉:是的,这学期我需要买一台电脑,
人家告诉我这里的电脑比较便宜。
亚历克斯:的确,你听到的是对的。
在这买新电脑你可以拿到很不错的价格,
我们给学生很大的折扣。
雪莉:我对电脑了解不多,
但是我知道我要一台有很大内存的桌上电脑,而且我还要一台打印机。
亚历克斯:好的,我们先考虑你要的电脑。
我极力推荐这儿的一套系统-麦金塔 G3。
它的总内存为六十四百万位元。
雪莉:那很多吗?六十四?
亚历克斯:是的,对任何学生的需求应该是足够了。
你是什么系的?
雪莉:历史系。
亚历克斯:好的,所以你会常用文字处理来写报告。
我推荐 Corel Word Perfect 程式来做文字处理。
我们待会再来谈软件,先谈硬件吧。
我们现在有特价, 
我应该告诉你,因为只持续到星期二为止。
如果你购买这套有麦金塔 G3 的 15 寸彩色主机, 
事实上就可以有平常售价的七折。 
雪莉:七折?
亚历克斯:是的。
雪莉:哇,太好了。
你觉得对一个研究生而言,这是一个很好的系统吗?
亚历克斯:是的,它是很棒的系统。
雪莉:嗯。嘿,等等,这上面有个苹果记号,这是苹果电脑吗?
亚历克斯:是的,是麦金塔,也是苹果机。麦金塔和苹果机是一样的。
雪莉:我不想要麦金塔,我要个人电脑。
亚历克斯:很抱歉,但是大学的电脑中心只卖麦金塔设备。
雪莉:什么?说真的吗?
亚历克斯:是的。
雪莉:可是没有人用麦金塔。
亚历克斯:不会啊,
这所大学大部分的学生和教授都用麦金塔。
他们发现这套系统对写作和文字处理比较好,
而且大多数学生都在使用它。我可以问你从哪来的呢?
雪莉:我是台湾来的。
亚历克斯:我知道苹果电脑在亚洲大多数的国家并不是很流行。
但在美国这里,尤其是大学和出版社里,
使用苹果电脑是非常普遍的。
雪莉:但是我需要一台可以处理中文写作的电脑。 
亚历克斯:有一些中文的写作程式可以在麦金塔上使用,
对苹果电脑而言,中文不是问题。   
雪莉:嗯……
我想在做决定前请教我一些朋友的建议。
很抱歉。
亚历克斯:不会,不需要抱歉。问你朋友是合理的,
但是相信我,这所大学大多数的学生─-
包括亚洲的学生,大部分都使用苹果电脑。
雪莉:好的,谢谢你的建议,我可能之后会再回来。
亚历克斯:非常欢迎。这是我的名片,如果你需要任何帮忙的话。
