In the wake of HP's announcement that it intends to investigate a PC spin off, the company has discovered one of the downsides to being the market leader: It's hard to find a buyer. Samsung has recently announced it has no interest in acquiring HP's PSG (Personal Systems Group). While Samsung's own PC business is quite healthy, with ten million units shipped last year, it's dwarfed by HP's estimated 64 million unit shipments over the same period. Samsung's CEO told Wired: "Based on the significant disparity in scale with Samsung’s own PC business and the complete lack of synergies, it would be both infeasible and imprudent to even consider such an acquisition."
