Hewlett-Packard

Hewlett-Packard is the PC leader and has a wide range of businesses ranging from printing to software to enterprise servers. HP also is a major services player via the acquisition of EDS. As IBM's primary rival, HP aims to sell customers an entire stack of hardware, software and services. Under Mark Hurd, HP was a lean, mean operational machine. The next CEO, however, must show that HP can grow organically sans acquisitions and cost cuts.

HP EliteBook Folio 9470m review

The EliteBook Folio 9470m is a well-made ultrabook with a particularly good keyboard and touchpad. We like the removable battery and optional battery slice, but would prefer a higher screen resolution across the range. Windows 8 fans will also note the absence of a touchscreen option.
