HP does well in PC market

Written by Nick Farell



Strange that it is thinking of getting out of it


Despite the fact that HP is thinking of getting out of the hardware market, the numbers of PC shipments grew 5.3 percent in the third quarter.

According to Gartner, the maker of expensive printer ink now has a 17.7 percent share of an ailing global market, up marginally from 17.3 percent a year ago. Given what the company has been doing lately to convince users that it might be selling itself that is a pretty good figure. Wall Street had thought that a premature announcement about the potential spinoff of HP's largest division would drive customers away.

The figures also show that China's Lenovo overtook Dell to become the world's No. 2 PC maker for the first time. PC sales are dropping thanks to declining consumer spending although there are predictions that things will get better next year.

I was out looking to get a cheap laptop for around $400 and walked past a HP shop without bothering to look.

If they don't sell off their PC arm, dm1z would be my purchase.

Exactly what a Lenovo rep said.

I wanted a Llano laptop for work related stuff, and since Thinkpad T series don't come with Llano, I decided to look at HP, I got a Probook 6465b, which is just mindblowing, the build quality is great and comparable to quality thinkpads, the screen is a sweet 14" with the even more sweet resolution of 1600x900, HP has potential, as long as they don't hire completely insane CEO's.
