Welcome.  Aiming to cover the subject.

> The phrase "not so expensive" can now be quantified.

Your Web page doesn't have a list price.  I think of putting something 
such as "300-500" in the table.

According to the Wikipedia article, the introductory price for the Mac 
Plus was 2599 US$; equivalent to over 6 k$ now. Really 500 dollars for 
a more powerful machine is a good bargain.

USB power adapters are everywhere.  Not required with the board?

The front page of the book gets 500-1500 accesses/mo.  Enthusiasts 
should notice available hardware.

> ... IMHO ZBT is better ...

The description of ZBT mentions zero latency between read and write.
The naive reader might expect ZBT would allow a faster machine 
compared to ASRAM.

Yes, given the objectives of the machine, the cost of ZBT over ASRAM 
should be acceptable.
