But it turned out to be a non starter because they did not accept any order that did not originate from the U.S.A.
They must think it is only safe to accept orders from the U.S.A. even with a Citibank card.

In anycase, I went to www.ebay.com
and bought it for even less.
OK. Now I have to wait for the Software CD to arrive (hopefully)
