The Macintosh Clones

There were two eras of Macintosh clones: the unauthorized period, when clones were reverse engineered or built around ROMs, or logic boards removed from existing Macs and the authorized period, when Apple approved vendors and authorized hardware designs.

Apple started to license the Mac in 1994, the first clones arrived in 1995, and they quickly into Apple's profitable high-end market. For an overview of this authorized clone period, see Apple Squeezes Mac Clones Out of the Market.
