While we have been focusing on the drama unfolding from Intel's Ultrabook plans there has been another story unfolding; HP's possible plans to sell or spin off their Personal Systems Group. The rumour started a few weeks back and HP was quick to respond to the rumours stating that they were considering the move but did not have any buyers in mind. X-bit Labs went to a great source to find out more information about HP's plans, Rahul Sood started the boutique system build company, VoodooPC which was acquired by HP five years ago. They discuss VoodooPC, the issues present in HP's PSG division and what plans HP should consider to keep themselves relevant to system buyers.
"HP's plan to spin off its personal systems group caught everyone by surprise and results of such a move are hard to overestimate. Today we are talking to Rahul Sood, a co-founder of the legendary VoodooPC boutique PC maker and a former employee of HP. We will discuss Voodoo, HP in the past and now as well as the personal computer industry in general."
