Meaning of IBM COMPATIBLE

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

A computer which can use hardware and software designed for the ibm pc (or, less often, IBM mainframes).

This was once a key phrase in marketing a new PC clone but now in 1998 is rarely used, the non-IBM wintel personal computer manufacturers such as compaq, dell and gateway 2000 and OS vendor microsoft having taken control of the market, marginalising IBM.
