Michael Dell: HP’s PC Strategy Change Is a Bad Move

Michael Dell has chimed in on HP's boneheaded idea of spinning off its PC division. To be honest, it's not like HP has made just one bad decision lately, the company has become the poster child for bad decisions.

HP keeps repeating that it hasn't yet decided whether it will spin off its Personal Systems Group. "Our leadership is focused on getting this analysis done as quickly and accurately as possible, and we'll communicate it as soon as we can," said the company in a response to Dell's comments. Still, simply by putting that option on the table, HP has shaken its own foundation to the core, and backing off from the decision now could be just as harmful as staying the course.
