Thank you for getting back to me,please can i be rest assure that it's in good or fair condition state and will not be disappointed with it.I'm ready to pay your asking price and to be honest am buying this for my Son.But the main issue is that 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 so my only quickest payment option is PayPal as i can send money via PayPal anytime.Since I'm requesting this transaction to be done via PayPal, i will be responsible for all the Paypal fee/charges on this transaction and if you don't have an account with Paypal yet, its pretty easy, safe and secured to open one.Just log on to and get it setup I have a mover that will come for it once payment clears and they will take care of very necessary paper on behalf of me.
