Both before and after?

Could it ever be correct to say "Compré un nuevo ordenador nuevo" to express that it was both new to me and brand new? If not, how would you express that. This can be confusing in English as well.

Hola Michael

You could say that but it would sound a little bit odd. I think I would probably extend the sentence and say something like:

Compré un nuevo ordenador que era nuevo.

I bought a new computer that was new (not second hand).
