HP will retain PC business

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 27, 2011 – HP today announced that it has

completed its evaluation of strategic alternatives for its Personal Systems

Group (PSG) and has decided the unit will remain part of the company.

“HP objectively evaluated the strategic, financial and operational impact

of spinning off PSG. It’s clear after our analysis that keeping PSG within

HP is right for customers and partners, right for shareholders, and right

for employees,” said Meg Whitman, HP president and chief executive

officer. “HP is committed to PSG, and together we are stronger.”

Here at Think I.T. we are happy that HP have clarified their strategy around PSG as this gives us confirmation that HP will remain embedded in New Zealand as it has been for a long time.

PSG is responsible for the devices you sit in front of (PCs/laptops etc.), Point of Sale equipment and digital signage. Although we believe, like the spin off of IBM PCs to Lenovo, sale of PSG would not impact the service you receive currently nor the quality of the product produced it is possible that a spin off might have shrunk the wide range of devices available in New Zealand and moved manufacture of some devices from Australia to somewhere further away.

So it sounds like HP will continue to provide cost effective, high quality end user devices for the foreseeable future – which is good news.
