Amiga500: Lazarustorm/PiStorm vs ACA500plus

The original Amiga 500 is a great machine, but its 7MHz CPU is a bit slow at times and the 512K of base memory quite limited.

All the while these cards don’t require you to open up your A500, but instead they fit on the expansion slot on the left side of the Amiga, making the process very easy and reversible. Let’s take a look at the PiStorm based Lazarustorm and the Individual Computers’ ACA500plus.
