System Information

Sold only in the united kingdom the Amiga 1500 was basically a normal Amiga 2000 but with two floppy drives. Commodore UK put this machine to market against the Checkmate 1500, which was basically just a desktop casing for the A500. This system was cheaper then a normal 2000 and was targeted at a younger public.

Rev. 6.2 mainboard, Kickstart switch 1.3/2.0/3.0
