From HP Press Release:
HP To Separate Into Two New Industry-Leading Public Companies
Hewlett-Packard Enterprise will define the next generation of technology infrastructure, software and services for the New Style of IT
HP Inc. will be the leading personal systems and printing company delivering innovations that will empower people to create, interact and inspire like never before
It is not entirely a surprise for HP to spin-off its PC and Printer divisions. Back in 2011, then HP CEO Leo Apotheker was looking into selling off its PC unit. After appointing Meg Whitman as CEO, HP announced that it would keep its PC Division.
HP Computers and Printers are still selling, but does it really give HP good profit margins. Of course, its lucrative printer in business is still profitable; but for how long?
