Hey guys, do not know where to intro myself so I'll do it here.

My name is Nathan. I'm 17 years old and I'm from Australia! I own an Amiga 500 only, as I can't afford an A2000-3000 Series. Click image for larger version

ID:	44787 she is still going strong after 30 years, though the 1MB expansion went bad so I'm stuck on 512KB thanks to battery leakage. Has anyone got a spare expansion or two? I need a HDD and a 1MB expansion.

Hi and welcome

Check the Marketplace on here and maybe post a wanted advert for a RAM expansion.
Amibay is a good place to buy too

If you're wanting a new card then I've spotted these recently...


Amigakit and Versalia have some RAM options too for the 500.

I see. I only have $24 to my name, so I can't buy at the moment.

I picked up a 500 last year did the same... killed the expansion - in my defense, I was trying to fix a faulty sound connector on the mainboard.... didnt seat the shielding back properly which made contact... doh.

Hit garage sales etc, surprising what you find

Hi Nathan, its also worth looking on gumtree site and possibly posting a "wanted" advert.

Just had a quick look to see whats on there, while some are not in our state there are Amiga 500's with extra accessories
