Dear Sir,

We would be grateful for details of the latest computer systems your company is offering.

We are looking for business range computers. Quality is important to us. We require a large system in the shortest possible time.

Please quote us your lowest possible prices, with the highest available discounts and best cash terms.

An early reply would be appreciated.
Yours sincerely,
Dr. Peter Smith

In the real world, you'd have to give them a great deal more detail before they could offer a price quotation. They'd send a salesperson to talk to you.

Hi Bourair;
Such a letter should not be addressed to the company's president, but to the sales department. The president usually does not handle such requests. It is important for the letter to be short and very logical. The salutation should be "Dear Sir:"
You should begin with the purpose of your letter, for example, We are interested in purchasing 100 high-end business systems. (Also you could mention the operating system and software that you need to be provided.) Next state you terms and conditions: For example: We need these systems as soon as possible, ideally within one month, and for the best possible discount prices at cash terms.
Next, ask for what you want, for example: Please send us the specifications of the latest models that fit these requirements, and a quotation for the base price, and any recommended optional equipment. (Do you want to ask about other charges, like shipping?)
Next, thank them for a quick response.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Thank u very much my freinds.

your advices was very usefull 4 me.

however , i wrote another message depending on ur adivces , and i need ur help to correct it , if there is any grammatical or punctual errors , and i need to know if there is another phrases or words better than mine and why ....

Please remember that my messege is formal.

Dear Sales Manager:

Due to the oldness of our faculty computers, we are interested in purchasing new

ones as replacements; therefore, we trust you will kindly inform us about the

latest computer offers you proffer presently, and we beg to call your careful

attention to the fact that we seek the business range.

Though quality is a matter that should be kept in mind, yet rational prices are

greatly appreciated since numerous quantities shall be demanded in the shortest

possible time. Consequently, please quote us the most recent offers you tender

with the lowest possible prices and best available discounts and cash terms, and

an early reply would be much obliged.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours sincerely,

Peter Smith

Purchases Manager.
Hi,

Dear Sir:

Rather than rewriting all of this for you, let me just offer a couple of suggestions.

Formality does not require the use of fancy words like 'proffer' and complicated sentences. You need to say what you want in a much more simple and direct manner.

Your letter is excessively polite, particularly the first paragraph. Again, formality does not require elaborate politeness.

You need to include details, like how many computers you want.

I suggest you rewrite this, and post it again if you wish.

Best wishes, Clive
Dear Bourair;
Please take Clive's advice on the tone and structure of your formal letter. His advice is right on. Your letter is obsequious, even bordering on being unctuous. This would have been the style of a professional letter in the Victorian age, but not in the modern age of global commerce.
I will just point out some errors in grammar, and word choices.

Though quality is a matter that should be kept in mind, yet rational (reasonable - rational means "sane" and implies that they might not be thinking correctly) prices are greatly appreciated since numerous quantities (qualities does not make much sense) shall (shall is not used much anymore) be demanded in the shortest possible time. Consequently, please quote us the most recent offers you tender with the lowest possible prices and best available discounts and cash terms, and an early reply would be much obliged.
