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.
