Jai’s Laptops

Today I made some laptops, Apple ones. I like Apple computers because they look so clean and fresh and cool. To make my computers I was walking around thinking of what to do and I saw Bri with her laptop and I started thinking about laptops and decided to make some. The first one is made out of paper and the second one is made out of cardboard, texta and masking tape for the hinges ( I learnt the word hinges today). When I get older I want to buy an Apple laptop and a USB to save my work.

What is your favourite type of computer?
