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.
