Our take on HP’s landmark announcement to evaluate their PC strategy [HP]

With the media speculation about the future about HP’s PC division, how do you know what to believe? The truth is, HP is weighing their options right now and nothing has been decided for their Personal Systems Group. They have big decisions to make and there is a lot to consider for the future of their $42 billion PC division.

HP has assured Softchoice that they are committed to service, product availability and driving innovation for their PC business. And HP still has some of the best engineered products and best support in the industry.

Todd Bradley, Executive Vice President of the Personal Systems Group has been quoted as saying that the Palo Alto technology giant will make a decision on their strategy for the PC division in 8 to 12 weeks.  He also appeared on Bloomberg where he underlined that HP hasn’t made a decision and that they are still behind their successful PC business.

No matter the course HP chooses regarding their PC division, it will likely take at least 12-18 months to execute as mentioned by HP in a recent press release. Any possible change isn’t going to happen overnight. And the story, mostly driven by the media, changes by the minute.

While this uncertainty and speculation may be cause for concern to many HP customers, Softchoice firmly believes that at this stage there is no reason for you to re-evaluate existing PC and notebook strategies. And we are always here to answer any questions you might have.
