Here’s what I discovered when researching background material to write about Hewlett-Packard’s impending break-up. You can draw your own conclusion.
Hewlett-Packard says it will split in two. One part will offer high-end computer equipment and services to large companies. The other will make and sell PCs, printers and other devices.
While Hewlett-Packard boss Meg Whitman is sticking to her line that the company’s recovery remains on track, there’s little sign of a turnaround in the company’s second quarter result.
Given its price, the HP Chromebook 14 is surprisingly good-looking. Most low-cost laptops look, well, like low-cost laptops.
It’s also nicely made and a smart choice for people who need a basic, no fuss computer. I’ve seen laptops selling for twice the price that feel more flimsy, less sturdy than the HP Chromebook 14.
