It'd be silly to buy anything but the one with all the frills.

Thanks for the interest guys.

I can get them in at a landed cost of R3550 a piece.
This will be for the fully loaded unit.

I think to keep things simple, I will not deviate from the fully loaded spec, and only 15 units are available.
I need payment made by Thursday evening (pm me for details) or you will be bumped from the list as I will place the order and make payment on Friday morning.
All units will be shipped to me in Johannesburg, so if you need them forwarded on please bear in mind the additional postage fees in SA to get the unit to you.

Please quote this message and add your name to the end so we can build a list of orders.
The first 15 names on the list and who make payment on time will be the 15 to get units. Hope this works for everyone. I just need to keep this tight and simple.

IVMAN - 1 Unit
