IBM Compatibles

The computers that have some functional characteristics and principles of IBM computers are called IBM compatible. IBM compatible computers are developed by other companies than IBM companies using the technology of IBM PC. They are easily available and cheaper. Their parts are easily available in the market. They are also duplicate or assemble a computer. They are popular in the world.

Apple/Macintosh

All the computers manufactured by Apple Co-operation are known as Apple/Macintosh computer. It is a leading computer manufacturing company of USA. Apple computers are developed by Apple Co-operation which was established in the late 1970s in the USA. Apple computers are costlier than IBM computers.

These computers use their own software and hardware. Software developed for IBM computer can't run in apple computers and vice-versa. They are totally different than that of IBM computers, in terms of both hardware and software. They are available in a different capacity, cost and sizes. These computers are nearly 8% in the market.

Very Short Questions

The full form of XT is 'eXtra Technology'. They are the old technology computers. It uses text based software or CUI (Character User Interface). Complex calculation and large dada processing is not possible in it because of the lower storage capacity and lack of fast processing speed. The I/O devices used in XT computers are not faster or flexible. The computers having Intel 8085/8086/8088 processor lies under XT technology.
