Something else happened. In less that 24 hours, I was able to get in contact with someone who had EXACTLY what I wanted and more.
My friend Joseph Massih from Active Identity 's brother, (not grandfather), has a dealership specialized in used desktops, laptops and screens that are in great condition.
His depot is in amchit, Jbeil. And as soon as I hung up the phone Joseph, I was on my way there. One hour later, i became te proud owner of a DELL laptop [1GB Ram, Pentium M].
I can now finish my project :)
