Ricapitoliamo (pardon the Italian word...): I'm a young boy (15 years old). The owner is younger than me (10 years) and he hasn't a minimal concept on the Amiga "computer", but he is using it only as a game machine. He bought his A500+ NEW, not used. He doesn't know the meaning of Kickstart, Workbench, etc. I also asked to his parents and they replied that the computer was always at home, never in a service center. > Another possible hypothesis is that the original 2.04 ROM went > flaky after passing QC, and that it was replaced with > "any-suitable-chip-and-quickly-sucka!" after the machine first turned red > for the shame. Same result. Yes, that's possible. Another strangeness is in my CBM Model 8032-32B: in the Canonical List I found that the 32B is an 8032 in an higher profile case and I saw some photos on the Internet of those 8032-32Bs with an high case. But th one I'm owning have got THE SAME low profile case of a normal 8032... Ciao!
