   It's basicly the same as a HP 9915 except it has a few more keys and a
small (12 character?) LED display.

  Yes, it does but the 150 uses the port to connect to peripherals
operating under MS-DOS. It has no commands that will let you send or

  Yes, but it doesn't have support for instruments and such and you can't
get direct control over what's send over the bus.
