M13 is simply a stompbox modeller and the HD500 has amp sims I think and a built in expression pedal. I own the M13 and it's sooo easy to use live and sounds amazing. If you have good gear/love your amp tone, then get the M13.

I like hd500. Haven't played m-13. I like hd 50O. Variety of effect and amp tones are nice. I got a devil and the hd500 let's me get good metal tones with the effects.
My newest cover Rivers Of Babylon sublime style.
