The pro 1.5 is just the newer version.
You obviously haven't used both. Yes, there's a reason they went from calling it adobe premiere to adobe premiere *pro*. It's much more geared towards higher-end video editors. It's made as competition to apple's Final Cut.
I've used all versions since version 6 and pro 1.0 and 1.5 are more difficult, especially for a beginner, to use. they're also more powerful, but that's the obvious tradeoff.
