Excellent - nice find Viddi

The A500 looks like it has had some sort of Mod done to it - a Ram or Chip upgrade of some kind?

We should email them and warn them about the yellowing!
Just show them an old A500 on Ebay that has been left to suntan!!

It has two switches : One to select DF0/DF1 (not sure if that means that it becomes the boot drive then) and the other one to select 512 KB/ 1 MB RAM.
Here is photo where it's better visible : http://www.sguidetti.net/foto_temp/IMG_0555.JPG

Amazing find. I've never heard of this before. (and I'm sure most people haven't)

Somebody should add this info on the Wikipedia Amiga page.
