The computer business - e.g. selling computers, or repairing them for home users is clearly suffering due to the how cheap computers have become. However, your typical office PC with properly licensed software will run anywhere from $1000 - $1500. On top of that, moving up the chain from small to medium sized businesses, you'll find that it is usually easier to get monies approved for service and repair work, than it is for improvements (e.g. buying new PCs).

I think making a go of this would depend on the market. I live in a smallish town (300,000 people) that I am not sure would support this type of business. I have seen many people attempt this and fail miserably.
