The main difference between Radio Schack Partner 1680X Model 60-2428 and Model 60-2428A are the way the playing levels are used. The later 1996 Model 60-2428A version is more user friendly in this respect. The play behavior is different between these two computers because of the way these play levels are differently designed.
