Gianfranco Lanci, the man behind the company's renaissance over the past couple of years, says the industry needs consolidation, and that some companies are bound to be squeezed out of the market.

In a recent interview, Lanci said the top three PC makers, HP, Dell and Acer, need to take out Toshiba and Sony. He claims Japanese PC makers are "at the weakest today".
