The case for Mac Clones.
The first Mac that I ever purchase was a Power Computing Power 100. One of the original Mac-compatible “clones” that were present in the early nineties. I loved that thing. It had a nice tower-case configuration, ran well and cost almost $1000 less then the “Real Thing”, aka a PowerMac 8100. From my vantage point as a user, aside from a slightly fuller feeling in the wallet, I couldn’t tell the difference between the Power Computing computer and the Apple PowerMac. Except I could. It seemed to crash less than the PowerMac’s I was using in the classrooms.
