The TI-501 was introduced two years after the TI-1015 and sports a similar calculator chip in a somewhat smaller housing. We can't locate any exciting feature at this calculator.

The TI-50x line brought some other cheap calculators like the TI-502, TI-506, TI-507 or the TI-503SV. Another TI-501 appeared 17 years later, view it here.
