Commodore
AMIGA 1500

The Amiga 1500 was a variation of the Amiga 2000 that was only available in the U.K. in 1990.

This system came with two internal floppy disk drives (only one for the 2000), but without hard disk and controller card. Nevertheless, it was a true Amiga 2000 that could be easily upgraded. It also featured one of the latest motherboard version (6.2), the ECS chipset and Kickstart 2.04.

_______________________

Alan Lewis reports to us:
The Commodore Amiga 1500 was bought out with one purpose in life...
A Uk company, Checkmate Digital, had produced an "exapansion" box for the A500. It was a complete new system case for the A500, offering expansion slots/ports, internal storage bayes, etc. Checkmate called it the A1500, and was available as a kit, or pre-assembed complete with A500 computer. And it was quite succesful...

Shortly afterwards, Commodore bought out the A1500. oddly enough, the only difference between an Commodore A1500 and a B2000... the 1500 had an additional floppy drive and a b/w A1500 sticker... the two machines were identical. The B2000 was supposed to have had a hard disk added, but resellers all sold these models as optionals...

For anyone wanting to get an A1500 might as well look for an A2000 instead. They are much more common. The only difference is in the label (and the extra floppy), the mainboard is just an A2000 one (as mentioned here). It was purely a marketing thing, and only sold in the UK afaik.

I still have an Amiga 1500..though the one I bought had a "massive" 52MB HDD? and I think I added extra mem to expand it to 3MB in total.. and I also upgraded from 1.3 to 2.04. I really need get it down from attic and fire it up
