Will Samsung buy HP's PC division?

Will Samsung buy HP's PC division? | ZDNet UK

Can Hewlett-Packard's $41 billion Personal Systems Group (PSG) stand on its own two feet? If not, who would buy it? Unfortunately for HP, it doesn't know the answers. This -- along with the ending of WebOS devices and the deal to purchase Autonomy, a UK software house, for $10bn -- wiped more than 20 percent off the value of HP's shares.

Reporting the news last week (see HP kills WebOS, may sell off PC division), I quoted HP saying that "its board of directors has authorized the exploration of strategic alternatives for its Personal Systems Group (PSG). HP will consider a broad range of options that may include, among others, a full or partial separation of PSG from HP through a spin-off or other transaction."
