I've heard of an IBM "clone", but not a "Clone Athlon"! I came across this term while browsing computers at an auction site. The product description at the site is as follows: Clone Athlon 1.1GHz 56MB RAM 30GB HD. I'm a real novice, but would most definitely understand this description if the word "Clone" were not included! Is there a company that is putting out an imitation of an AMD processor, or does this simply mean that the computer doesn't have a specific brand name? Hopefully someone will answer this stupid question. Thanks.:confused:

Hi Pam, I think in this instance they are using the word 'clone' to distinguish between a name brand computer, i.e. Dell, HP, Compaq, and a generic computer.

Thank you, everyone, especially SavvyLady!

I am quite embarrassed to have asked this question in the first place! Once I saw Savvy's second reply, I went back there myself to see how she got the detailed listing. It was then that I realized I had never scrolled all the way to the bottom of the page. That will be one mistake I shall never make again!

I apologize for wasting your time. If you want to kick me out, I'd probably deserve it!

Thanks for bearing with me,
Pam
