It was not a good time for Miguel Torres' 4-year-old computer to give up the ghost. Torres, owner of Proremodels, a West Jordan, Utah, home remodeling company, was already strapped for cash when his computer conked out.
He poured $300 into repairs; it crashed again, and he couldn't afford to replace it.

"It was a really bad time for me," Torres says.
