Hardware, Embedded Systems "Leo Apotheker's disastrous tenure as HP's CEO revealed a dysfunctional company struggling for direction after a decade of missteps and scandals. Can his replacement, Meg Whitman, fix the tech giant?" As a consumer, I wish they simplified their product line-up. They have the engineering skills - I just have no idea what I'm supposed to buy when I visit their site. The choice for the ZenBook late last year instead of anything HP had to offer was elementary.

I don't care how much crapware they load on, as long as I get a genuine Windows install disc with the computer. The first thing I do when I get a PC like that is format and reinstall clean. If they won't provide a DVD and insist that the 'restore partition' is good enough, that is a deal-breaker for me. I don't even mind paying a little extra to get the install disc, since I know that the crapware is probably where most of their profits are coming from.

As for HP computers in general, I figure if they're selling them at Wal-mart, that's probably one brand I should avoid like the plague.
