That is because when the 600 was introduced, hardly any PCMCIA peripherals existed so your choices were basically limited to an internal 2.5" IDE drive and 1MB extra chip at a time when the 500 had lots of sidecars with fast CPUs, fastmem, SCSI etc.

Today we have various clip-on CPU/fastmem boards, PCMCIA fastmem/ethernet/storage, Indivision, and now even RTG through the Vampire board, so the expandability of the 600 looks better than the 500 to me, and most of the 600 peripherals are cheaper than the currently available options for the A500.
