@paul 2010, Alexh offers sound advice.. Instead of a hard drive for your A500 look out for a cheap A1200, you can even buy one without all the leads if it were to crop up as you have them all from the A500.

You'll be able to install a 2.5in Laptop style hard drive or a CF Card via CF-IDE adapter.

The A1200 if you put an 8mb Ram upgrade inside is a very capable machine, you'll have access to a huge number of WHDLoad games that you can run straight off the hard drive, no more need for all those floppy's and they load a hell of a lot quicker.

I sold my A500 for 20, in fact it was Prowler who bought it! I just didn't need that along with my A1200 once I got the Ram upgrade. As the others have said they really don't sell for a huge amount unless they are in immaculate condition, maybe one to keep for nostalgia's sake.

Steve.
