I am thinking about how to express this idea. I want to say that the market is saturated by computers. So:

  • There is a big offer of computer on the market


  • There is a big computer offer on the market

Which one sounds better?

Thank you all

    You can't say "offer of computer" because computer is countable, so must either be plural or have a determiner of some sort. However, questions on this site need to be scoped to some point of grammar or usage. What is the actual doubt that you have about your alternatives? Why are you asking about them? "Which one sounds better?" is simply inviting opinion. – Andrew Leach May 19 '18 at 11:21
  • Sorry Andrew, I am just learning english and I had this doubt. I did´t know that question must be scoped in this site. Sorry again, I am a beginner here. – Jose Spanish May 19 '18 at 11:26

    You might be interested in our sister site called English Language Learners. Their criteria are a little less strict than ours, because the target community is different. – Andrew Leach May 19 '18 at 11:29

    Neither one makes much sense. There is a glut of computers on the market. The computer market is saturated. Too many computers are for sale. And many others. – Hot Licks May 19 '18 at 11:29
  • Neither makes sense as there must be multiple offers. 'There are many good deals for computers available.' – Edwin Ashworth May 19 '18 at 12:42

Neither of your sentences sounds very English. The same words might sound good in other languages, but the mere translation word-for-word does not work in this case.

One way to convey the meaning is:

There is an abundance of computers on the market.


There is a big variety of computers available for purchase.

and others as well.
