Thank you for getting back to me, I would have loved to call you directly but due to the nature of my work as am an oceanographer and on a job contract at the moment. The contract is strictly no call due to the lack of reception on the sea area. But I'm able to access email anytime as we will make use of laptop
I am buying this for my lovely daughter who just graduated on top of her class at University, I want it to be the perfect graduation gift for her and am making it a surprise package, Does it have any history I should be aware of? and why are you selling if you don't mind my asking. I don't mind adding an extra $200.00 for you just to take down the posting. I am ready to purchase it as soon as possible.
I have actually tried to get this kind of here earlier from here but most of the ones I got either have one huge fault or the other and some have even had accidents in the past while some are extremely exorbitant. As to the price, Price is Ok. I will be glad to make the payment asap via PayPal or bank transfer online as am currently at sea and i promise not to let you down. i will pay $95 AUD for the Australia Express delivery charges and you will do posting once transfer as been completed . Kindly get back to me with your payment details so i can proceed with the payment right away and if you want the payment to be made via bank transfer send me your account name,bank account, bsb for the payment. Kindly inform other buyers it as been sold as am ready to purchase right away. I shall be waiting to read from you asap.
