Amiga 1500 Design/Leisure/Business/Education
|Year of sale:
Amiga 1500 packs marketed the machine as a home computer for business,
education and leisure use. The packaging for these bundles varied
according to the software provided. It may be speculated that four
packaging variants were sold that emphasised different aspects of
the Design - Leisure - Business - Education subline. However, only
two have been recognised in computing advertisements.
Design - Leisure - Business - Education
The DLBE package appears to promote the leisure and education aspects
of the bundle. It was, allegedly sold with Puzznic,
Home Accounts, Deluxe Paint III and The Works! platinum. Interestingly,
the packaging claims to be made of approximately 80% recycled paper.
Education - Design - Leisure - Business
The EDLB variation appears to promote the design and business aspects
of the bundle. The software bundled with the machine is uncertain
- it may have been the same as the DLBE pack or not included any
software at all. To clear their remaining stock, Silica advertised
it as the Amiga 1500 Starter pack for a retail price of 499 UK Pounds.
Some Amiga dealers provided additional software titles, such as
Lotus Challenge 2 as an incentive
to purchase the system.
