I just recently read articles from PC World and Forbes that state that HP is "considering" selling or spinning off the PC business!!!!
Being a long time and very satisfied customer I would regret the loss of the ability to purchase your quality products, and also a very big plus is your excellent customer service, tech support, and warranty coverage!
I know the articles also mention that you may reduce the range of products and stream line the offerings . I'd say that is a very good idea, hopefully it will lead to increased profitability.
I also think the idea of concentrating on your CORE business, which is what made your organization great is an excellent idea. No more phones, no more tablets, ect. Just the PC and server businesses , along with your excellent printers as well.
Here's to your continued success as the best PC OEM in the business!
A very satisfied long time customer.

Legacy, I haven't seen any of the rumors that you mention. However, I have to agree with what you said. HP has been my choice for many years. Paring down their product choices could make a big difference. Maybe they could even add an over-the-top gaming machine for we gamers.

from the pcworld article:
I’d like to see the company that ends up with HP’s PC business drop half of these lines and focus on premium, forward-looking products that start at no less than $799. HP shouldn’t even bother with cheap materials, bulky enclosures, and crummy keyboards and mice. Rather than a PC business that scales from “cheap to great,” the goal should be to start off at “great” and try to extend from there. Let the other guys fight over the $20 margin of a $400 all-in-one desktop.
