If you were starting a small business how much would you spend on a new computer?
Looking for a price range that most low income business owners would feel comfortable with and not sacrifice function for price. Most of the business owners I will be dealing with have no access to loans or grants for small businesses.

I ran a self proprietiorship window installation business... I felt I only needed the comp 4 a few templated things like a company stationery, a few marketing booklets 2 be made for ongoing clients 2 promte the business. The comp was (600-700 dollars and a software suite install was about 600 dollars) this included picture it publishing 4 marketing booklets 2 potential general contractors and also was good 4 biz cards, evelope printing with logo for return address, pre-printing marketing ads 4 sending out to a local mass mailer. I would also suggest also Quickbooks 4 accounting and you should be set.
700+600+250= $1550/comp.. if you plan 2 have a few comps installed through a gateway or router than times by the amount you need and add a little 4 the extra routering products and possibly extra 4 installation if not planning 2 do yourself.
I would definitely buy a used computer with some decent specs on Craigslist. Companies have been downsizing for a few years now and have tons of extra computers. My company has bought excellent computers for $100 each including monitors through craigslist. Save your capital and buy used if you're a startup.
I wouldn't spend more than about $700.00 - $800.00 when you're just starting out in your small business. You can always upgrade as your business grows. A computer at this price should get you through your first 3 - 5 years of business and maybe even more. My first computer lasted me 10 years of business.
