    Please help check if there are any mistakes in my diary

    Hi,
    I am writing diary but... I am hesitated if I shall use singualr or plural nouns:

    Tom has an IMB computer and John an Acer computer.
    Both their computers are old and have been damaged recently.
    But they are happy, because their father has promised them to
    replace their old computers with new ones.
    (Their father will buy two new computers, one for Tom and one for John)


    Is there any mistake in the diary?

    Your sentences are all fine.

    The only change I would suggest is: their father has promised them he will replace OR their father has promised that he will replace
