Firstly I assume clone is being used to mean non IBM PCs.
Cheaper, easier to service, can be faster, can be more easily upgraded. There is more technical support
Provided the components are manufactured by reputable companies, and that they are being chosen and assembled by appropriately skilled assemblers ( who are able to match components and assemble them properly) there are no disadvantages
However, there is a danger of purchasing products assembled from low quality components, or by low-skilled self-styled experts or deliberately dishonest dealers. Eg. Using secondhand or substandard parts
