It looks like HP was a bit rash with its previous decision to spin off its Personal Systems Group (PSG) – the division that creates its personal computers. The company has announced today that after much deliberation they’ve decided to keep the PSG within HP – a move that is “right for customers and partners, right for shareholders, and right for employees”. According to the company’s evaluation of the PSG, it turns out that division contributes to a significant portion of HP’s solutions portfolio and overall brand value. Also, the cost to recreate these in a standalone company outweighed any benefits of separation.
