So which one is better - A500 or A500+ or not a big difference - whichever is cheaper/in better condition?
I'd say go for a plain A500. The 500+ does not provide any ranger/slow mem which is a requirement for several older games and demos designed to work on a A500 with a 512kB trapdoor memory expansion. On the 500+, the trapdoor provides chip mem instead of ranger memory.
