+ - HP reconsidering PC unit spinoff->

Submitted by PolygamousRanchKid
PolygamousRanchKid (1290638) writes "Hewlett-Packard is reconsidering its decision to spin off its personal computer business after analysis indicated the spinoff costs might outweigh the benefits, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. "The analysis is under way now," an HP spokesperson said. "We said we would explore all options and that Meg would make a decision based on the data."

Meg Whitman, who took over the reigns of the company following the ouster of Apotheker in August, hasn't publicly announced the fate of the PC unit but has said HP has to determine whether it wants to spin off the PC unit "as fast as we can."

However, HP has reportedly been under pressure from manufacturing partners to keep the PC unit inside the company. Growing concern about the fate of HP's PC unit is pushing "channel operators" to switch their orders from HP to brands such as Dell, Acer, and Lenovo, Digitimes reported in September."
