 for IBM compatible
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  IBM compatible
  
      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.
