    ...by Red Star Machine Works is completely accurate?

    As small business people have become more technically skilled and the internet has made getting support so much easier, they may just need the services less - although they might express it to the vendor as "not having the money". Surely the business customers haven't just thrown out their computers -- somehow they are repairing/replacing them as needed for business.

    Also, the days of "upgrading" computers in a series of incremental steps (more memory this year, a bigger drive next year, maybe a faster CPU of the same family the following year, a new video card the following year) have past. Most savvy businesses just buy a whole new machine and get rid of the old one because they are so cheap and the cost of upgrading is still in the labor which isn't subject to Moore's law.

      great new computers and laptops. Of course their clients havent thrown out thier computers. Our clients haven't thrown out the tabulations and stats they need they have no work,  no cash flow, no money. No way to get capital flowing back to them. The real economy.  

      It's trickle down poverty. Get a grip small businesses are hurting regardless of  the support they get on the net. They are being eliminated and dropping like flies. Savvy businesses like Obama talks about? The ones that are not criminal but just savvy? I'm talking local small not savvy entrepreneurs who have capital.    

      Real small business local and not public cannot afford to buy new computers they cannot even afford to service what they have and in some cases don't have the need for them anymore as they are going under. Maybe your concept of small businesses differs from the reality that many real small businesses face.
