I have one of these, but it came with dual kickstart roms that are switchable. I''ve noticed that the floppy drive is a bit more quiet than the original A500 drives. Sadly the battery is indeed dead and decayed, having left a white crust on the motherboard which I think is oxydized lead. I do have a spare battery but I have to look into how I can best remove the encrusted lead without damaging the motherboard. The thing still runs beautifully and puts out a better videosignal quality than my A1200''s!

The A500+ does have a battery for real-time-clock. If you find these babies please check it, because almost 20 years old batteries do leak and destroy the motherboard! New battery is very cheap and it''s easy to change (only 3 legs to solder)...

When i bought it, the Price was (end of 1991) 799DM.

You could change the 2.04 - Kickstart-Rom by a 1.3 - Kickstart-Rom and make it fully compatible with a standard A500.
