i have a pc shop last year but we stop it already just this august. its profitable when you are in the right place. in other words its ok when you have a good vicinity. but if not, especially if youre only renting a place it would be hard to save money. because your earnings would go on rents and stuff.

of course! lalo na ngaun sa mga residential places... mga students who enrolls in public schools who cant afford to buy a personal computer.. internet cafes are of much help to them.. dapat lang talaga may maganda kang location.. before you invest pag aralan mo muna yung dami ng tao na papasok sau isa pa ung ability mo and knowledge sa pag fix ng computer problems.. at wag na wag mong kalilimutan ang ambiance.. sana kaaya aya, maliwanag at hgit sa lahat mabango hehe.. hindi amoy pawis.. if u know what i mean.. hope this could help you goodluck and Godbless!!!

I'm thinking of owning one, too. Our house is near a high school and I will not be renting. I will just have it in my garage. I am now researching on the feasibility of this business. I hope it'll work for me, too.

Yes it is still quite profitable, We have been in this business for quite a while now, we're now on our 7th year and we are still thriving. although of course it will depend on your computers, I mean have you kept up with the trends like hi-memory, upgraded video cards and such and of course your place of business. It has to be a thriving community with many teenagers that will continue to rent your pc's

yes, it is. my husband and I run a computer shop, if you are just starting out you need to find a place that is suitable and accessible to most, well as most business, marketing is key and knowing your business is essential, like what kids like to do on the internet, play games, chat, friendster/myspace, watch movies. So you can provide them what they need. and of course, a good price for the rental fee and good, reliable, fast pc's and internet connection will factor into it too.

Mahirap na talaga ngayon kasi bukod sa mahigpit na patayan pa yung presyo sa baba. Halos di mo na kitain lalo na kung uupa ka pa. Tapos ang halaga ng pc ang bilis bumaba kaya yung kinita mo parang sa ibinili mo lang ng pc pupunta kasi pag binenta mo, half the price kagad ang matatanggal sa original price.
