The Amiga A500, released in 1987, was Commodores first attempt at a low end Amiga 16/32-bit multimedia home computer. It became Commodore's best selling Amiga model and was replaced in 1991 by an enhanced model known as the A500 Plus.
Amiga A500

I currently own three of these. Sadly without the kickstart disks Ive never actually been able to use an A500. The best I can currently do is look at the monochrome insert disk screen. Two of the machines have A505 RAM/Clock modules installed. To prevent damage the rechargable batteries have been removed from them meaning their clock will probabily no longer functions. Should I manage to get a kickstart disk one day I will, with the help of some diodes, attach a CR2032 battery holder in place of the rechargable batteries.
