It passed Dell: Now what?
It passed Dell: Now what?
After winning a bloody war with Dell for dominance over PCs, Hewlett-Packard hasn't enjoyed much of a peace dividend.

The battleground is already shifting. Consumer hardware sales are slowing. The real money is in long-term contracts to help corporations set up and manage computer networks.

HP is already moving in this direction, but in the midst of expanding its model, Mark Hurd resigned following a sexual harassment investigation. So HP must transform with a new CEO.

NEXT: A hollow victory?
