Another one bites the dust… HP?

Another of the mighty have fallen.  Hewlett-Packard (HP – the worlds largest personal computer maker), coinciding with their Touch Pad disaster, is selling off their PC division after decades of making computers for the consumer and business markets.

“Hewlett-Packard… on Thursday confirmed that it is considering selling its personal computer business, along with announcements of an end to its tablet computer and smartphone products.” –

So what does this mean to you as a consumer and user of HP PC products.  It may mean nothing, depending on what happens to the PC division.  It could mean a nightmare for trying to get tech support, repair, or parts from HP as they transition through this process.  One thing is for sure, HP as we know it and have loved it for years will cease to exist in its current state.  As history has shown us, these major changes with companies like Hewlett-Packard rarely translate to “good times” for consumers.

Regardless of the path HPs future takes, we at Geek Easy want you to know we will continue to support HP PCs with tech service and repair.  Until the changeover process is completed, we recommend holding off on any purchases or service requests from HP as your transaction could be held up in the mire of red tape that typically accompanies this type of move.

Geek Easy will always be your point of reliable support.  You can always source us for any of your PC or Mac needs!
