Is the computer repair business dying?
L. E. Gant
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.
