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.

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...
