I believe that the Radio Shack 2150 is the same as the Saitek Simultano. Give this a try:

There are some differences between the 2 machines beyond the faster clock speed of the Simultano - depending on what version of that unit that you use for the comparison.

The purpose behind the Simultano was to be able to play up to 8 separate games against the same computer "simultaneously." These games were stored in slots A1 through A8 of the memory bank.

This feature is not found in the 2150.  Slots A1 through A4 in the 2150 contain pre-loaded grandmaster games and the rest of the memory banks in the "A" slots are dedicated to programable library memory.  The 2150 gets 4000 half moves of this memory while the Simultano has 3000. 

There are other differences in the controls and capabilities of the 2 units - most of them minor. 

At one time I was going to write up a complete list of the differences, but it turns out that I am a very lazy man.
