"Without HP, there would have no SIlicon Valley."



by 5 Jurors

The Hewlett-Packard Company or HP is an American multinational information technology corporation headquartered in Palo Alto, California, United States. It provides products, technologies, software, solutions and services to consumers, small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and large enterprises, including customers in the government, health and education sectors.
The company was founded in a one-car garage in Palo Alto by William "Bill" Redington Hewlett and Dave Packard. HP is the world's leading PC manufacturer and has been since 2007, fending off a challenge by Chinese manufacturer Lenovo, according to Gartner. It specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, data storage, and networking hardware, designing software and delivering services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise and industry standard servers, related storage devices, networking products, software and a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. HP markets its products to households, small- to medium-sized businesses and enterprises directly as well as via online distribution, consumer-electronics and office-supply retailers, software partners and major technology vendors. HP also has strong services and consulting business around its products and partner products. In 2012 it was the world's largest PC vendor by unit sales.
Major company events have included the spin-off of part of its business as Agilent Technologies in 1999, its merger with Compaq in 2002, the sponsor of Mission: Space in 2003, and the acquisition of EDS in 2008, which led to combined revenues of $118.4 billion in 2008 and a Fortune 500 ranking of 9 in 2009. In November 2009, HP announced the acquisition of 3Com, with the deal closing on April 12, 2010. On April 28, 2010, HP announced the buyout of Palm, Inc. for $1.2 billion. On September 2, 2010, HP won its bidding war for 3PAR with a $33 a share offer ($2.07 billion), which Dell declined to match.
Hewlett-Packard is not affiliated with Packard Motor Car Corporation, founded by James Ward Packard and William Doud Packard, or with Packard Bell.

HP PC is so robust, and it fosters the whole IT / Tech industry.

Hardware is cheap and fast.

Works beautifully good.

I owned a laptop from their Envy line. It is not so impressive when taking price into consideration. If you're looking for the best bang for your bucks in a notebook computer, I'd recommend Acer.

Ng Man yea, Acer, or Asus is better choice. But somehow the corporation will use Dell / HP / Levono, due to historical reason. They trust those brands more than others

Winnie Kirsch It's risk management. Corporate gets up to a 75% discount for bulk purchase in addition to dedicated corporate solution specialist and 24/7 hotline. That's a lot of support services on top of hardware.

Stephen Talty i can confirm.

My HP Pavillion is a good computer. It has lasted four years with an upgrade to the graphics card. Good midrange desktops from HP. Years ago they had a lot of trouble and hung up frequently, many times an hour. But it has been a decade since my first HP Pavillion and the current one is excellent.

They are an enterprise IT solution consultant and enterprise PC wholesaler. Their PC for home are terrible in terms of value for money.

HP produces decent quality desktops, but their laptops are well-known for severe overheating issues. I am currently using a dv6, and the idle CPU temperature is 70 C, while under load, it reaches 110 C.

Not the worst PC manufacturer, but certainly not the best.
