There is no money to be made in building and selling consumer computers these days. The large companies rely on huge volume to make any money. Much of what is on the market is rebranded hardware anyway.

I have a brother color laser printer. The quality leaves something to be desired. The unit also seems to snack on toner cartridges. I am not that impressed with Brother.

Over the years many companies were involved in building computers. Today, most of these companies are out of business or have moved on to other things. And much of that was in years past when the market was much more favorable. Today the computer market is a very difficult one. Every year the consumer wants more features and wants to pay less for them.

Most companies today know better than to get involved in building computers. Established companies can make a reasonable profit but it isn't easy. I expect that Brother would prefer to stay with other products that have higher margins.

A lot of good products have lost their market.

You need parts? Try google. It's unlikely a brick-and-mortar store could stay in business anymore by servicing typewriters.
