Summary
  • IBM is the standard of the industry, but it is far from dominating the sales charts. The reason for the company's lack of dominance in the market place can be traced directly to the design of its hardware. The open-architecture of IBM products has permitted third-party vendors to design and sell a variety of components that are plug-compatible. Compatible machines were designed originally to run the IBM software, but later they offered solutions to some IBM problems. The marketplace is flooded with clones, with no sure way to determining which is best for any one user or application. Although buying a clone can be rewarding, it is risky. The risk can be managed with advance planning and preparation. There are at least five separate and distinct sources of clones: mail order firms, private assemblers, local microcomputer dealers, the value added dealer who throws in a bit extra to sweeten his offering, aNd the do-it-yourself cloner.
