The newly merged entity, announced March 21, will improve branding enable better resource & supply management, enhance customer support, greater return of investment as well as streamlines HP’s collaboration with its channel partners globally. HP’s printing and PC units combined make up about half of HP’s $30 billion revenue in the first quarter. HP regained the title of No.1 PC Maker in the world in Q1 2012, relinquishing the throne from Apple.
