[BBC] Hewlett-Packard completes Autonomy buy-out

Hewlett-Packard has completed the $12bn (£7.8bn) buy-out of UK software firm Autonomy, despite the departure of the man who initiated it.

Leo Apotheker was replaced as HP chief executive last month amid falling sales and a share price collapse.

The Autonomy deal was part of a massive overhaul of the troubled US computer giant unveiled by Mr Apotheker.

But plans to spin off its core PC business received a thumbs down from the market.

HP's shares have fallen 47% this year, making it one of the worst performers in the Dow Jones index of leading US companies

So long as they empower the laptop business.. they should do fine, also a monopoly would help, purchasing smaller companies to bring them into yours and remove competition.

HP has got to have the worst reputation now, everybody even casual people think HP is awful.
