Branded computers are perhaps the best computers in the market to buy but there are still some people who go for the cloned ones since they are cheaper and can be fabricated in the way of choosing the computer peripherals to use. Of the two, we can single out the choice as dependent on the end user.
For the typical computer user who simply wants to use software and do business or anything that a computer will allow them to perform, most of them would vouch for the branded ones as offered by big name players in the computer industry such as IBM, Compaq and Dell. Although price may be an issue, at least they are assured of quality parts and service to which will be needed should they find themselves distraught for sudden problems with their computer.
Clone computers or something I refer to as chop-chop, are normally preferred by the technical savvy people who can take them apart and assemble them as they wish, using various computer hardware stuff available in the market. Normally, the typical computer geek would have their CPU case opened since they often want to upgrade and change parts as often as they can.
Of the two, preference depends on the one owning or using the computer. There are people who have a high level of satisfaction when it comes to computer requirements while others are simply satisfied with using them as long as they can provide the needs of their software to get their job done.
It may seem obvious but depending on the nature of the person who owns and uses these computers, chances are it will divide which is for branded and which is for cloned computers.
