So which one is better - A500 or A500+ or not a big difference - whichever is cheaper/in better condition?
A500 with 512K "slowmem" and A500+ are usually the same price (around 50-60 EUR for a complete tested system). But the first is best for your usage. It could also be that you'd find an A500 with kick 1.3 already, but for A500+ you'd have to buy a kick 1.3 and replace it, and likely also buy a 512K slowmem expansion.
