HP Inc (formerly Hewlett-Packard Company): PCs and Printers

There are now two HPs. There may have been smart business reasons for doing that, but for busy IT professionals it is confusing for the brand and there is just no way around that. Let me try to clear it up. HP Inc sells computers, solutions and services. But HP Enterprise sells services, solutions and computers.

Ok it is not that bad but does take a little study to figure this out. As a shorthand, think of HP Inc as focusing on the individual and small business. Think of HPE as focused on the enterprise.

Here is how HP Inc (NYSE:HPQ) describes themselves:
