HP has officially announced that it will be keeping its PC business after all, despite previous announcements that it was thinking about spinning off that division to become a stand alone business.
HP has now indicated that it would prefer to spin off its PC business into its own separate company rather than selling the unit to another company but added that more info is needed.
Samsung felt the need to say again that it really, really has no interest in buying HP's massive PC division which could find itself with a "For Sale" sign later this year.
The head of HP's PC business division, Todd Bradley, has said that the company will complete a review of the business in 8 to 12 weeks as it looks into either selling or spinning off the division.
