Finally some sense, HP is too big for scrap PC market.
With the creative force & guidance of new CEO Meg Whitman.
HP announces we will ditch all our business!
I dont know whats Autonomy but i really smell overpriced
Just realised, that'll move Lenovo or Dell to the top of Worldwide Shipments once HP drop out.
Lenovo still has close ties to IBM, and deals mostly with notebooks. Dell makes notebooks but is still a PC company, but PCs are slowly dying out (due to smart phones and tablets), or as said in one of those articles, PCs are mostly commodities - like refrigerators and washing machines - fancy typewriters - if anyone here remembers what a typewriter is.
There is still Acer (who owns Gateway and eMachines), and the big Japanese makers too.
Plus, with the OEM makers now making a huge name for themselves (ASUS, Gateway, MSI, etc.) consumers still have plenty of options, and competition is still stiff to keep prices down.
Still, you can't fit my two 22" monitors, full size keyboard, or real mouse, or my color printer/scanner/copier/fax, or my full range (read: not tiny) 5.1 surround sound in a tablet, so there will always be some sort of desktop system.
