Jonathan's promise is unenforceable because it was made after the sale, and therefore, there was no consideration. The rule of past consideration states that a promise made in return for an act that has already been completed is not enforceable because it lacks consideration. In this case, since the promise about the laptop being virus-free was made after the sale, it does not form part of the original contract, and thus, Alex cannot enforce it. 

Key Point: Consideration is a fundamental element of contract formation. A promise made after the completion of a contract, without new consideration, is generally unenforceable.
