Thanks for the reply! Even more questions incoming:

So, the onboard and trapdoor RAM combined forms a total capacity of Chip RAM? Or is there some mod required?

The absolute cheapest upgrade is nothing, no RAM, no CPU, no HDD, just a Gotek Floppy emulator. You'll be able to play all 68000 Amiga ECS/OCS games (which is 99% of them)
I actually tested a Gotek device, flashed with HxC firmware, which belongs to my friend. While it is a mighty fine device, it was kinda a shame it had several save/write issues (and that's quite important for me). Quoting Jeff, "this happen when you trying to make something "low cost" at any price and miss some important designs problems... "
