Its only shortcoming, according to Vaghan, is that like other IBM compatibles, BASIC (the language used by programmers) must be loaded from a diskette, since it is not on an IBM-PC chip.
Vaughan priced the 10-megabyte, hard-disk computer, which he later renamed Clone XT, at $1,595, then about 50 percent the cost of an IBM-PC. But when some of his customers balked at plunking down hundreds of dollars for an untested, unknown product, Vaughan came up with a one-year parts, 90-day labor warranty, and a one-year trade-in policy, in which dissatisfied clients could exchange their Clone-XT computer for any major brand-name computer of equal or greater value sold at PC Pricebusters.
