The End of ISA is Near--Part 5 of 5
Since manufacturers are phasing ISA card slots out of new computers, it makes sense to avoid ISA products whenever you buy new card-based hardware. You'll still find some ISA products on store shelves because some hardware makers simply haven't built new card designs based on the alternative data buses. If you find yourself interested in a particular ISA product, contact the manufacturer and ask when it plans to come out with a PCI-based version of that product. Generally, the answer will be very soon--and you may only have to wait a few weeks, if at all, for the newer version.
