Is the computer repair business dying?

It seems to me like the computer repair business is dying fast!

It's almost cheaper to get a new computer than to upgrade/fix an old one.


I can buy a computer for less than it would cost for the parts to build one. Often repair is more expensive than buying a new machine unless it is something simple like a power supply failure or software issue (virus)


A couple of years ago, I asked a repair technician what he charged and he said $100 an hour. Not long afterwards I was walking past his business and noticed it had closed down. I wasn't surprised.


I heard so. May all made it.
