Default A500 mobos

I have a couple of 500's that I'm gonna sell soon. I want to keep only one of them but I'm not sure which one to keep. Two of them have rev 6 mobos and one has an 8a mobo.

What are the differences and which one is the better choice to keep?

If I were you, I'd definitely keep the 8A revision (if it doesn't have some damage from the barrel type battery) as it has newest Agnus (which supports 2MB Chip RAM), it has 1MB soldered Chip RAM on board, it has newest Denise (ECS), RTC circuit.

Depending on the price and shipping, I may be interested in one of those Rev6. Sadly, my mobo is a rev3. Can't do much with it. It's the Holidays, though, so cash it really tight right now.


And *YES*, keep the Rev8 mobo. I've been looking for one, for years. 8C
