Yet another reason to consider alternatives to HP consumer products:

HP is undergoing a dramatic organizational change which could end up as quickly as next year having HP computers being sold under another company’s name. HP stated on Thursday it will discontinue it’s tablet/smartphone products and may sell or spin off it’s PC division further distancing itself from it’s consumer PC business.

Most of my Charleston computer repair and computer service clients know I worked for HP for 16 years, that I still own HP stock but despite these facts, I stopped suggesting HP consumer products long-ago both through dealings I have had with HP’s helpdesk and after seeing HP consistantly fall to the bottom or near bottom place in consumer rankings in magazines such as PC World.
