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 think that Dell are pretty much alone there. Asus, too, make you burn by yourself a tweaked restore image that takes up no less than 5 DVDs !

Pretty ugly practice for a company that otherwise produces flawless hardware for an attractive price. But well, real geeks don't use OEM-provided OS images, I guess...
