Amiga 500+ Restoration & Upgrades

I’ve been slowly but surely branching out into Amigas from Commodore’s 8-bit range of computers, but one of the first computers I bought was a Commodore Amiga 500+. This turned out to be a somewhat special unit, with serial number “000657”. The A500+ is a 16-bit computer from the 1990s, and is a more capable…
