ntappin, thank you for your suggestions.
As I mentioned in my first post, the seller is local so I am aware that there will be no additional shipping, customs or exchange fees to worry about. And I also mentioned in that first post that the price was $300 or best offer and that I was preferring to spend less if I went for this uni. Point in fact, I offered the seller $150 - low perhaps, but along the lines of what I was willing to put out for this uni.
And yes indeed, Darren could definitely fix me up with an awesome 20 inch uni if I contacted him about buying a new one. I am a huge Bedford fan and also a regular customer.
And actually, I never alluded to lack of time, so no need to brace yourself about a complaint like that from me.
