Uncertainty Over HP's PC Group: Who Stands To Benefit?


Lenovo

As vocal as Michael Dell has been on the potential impact of HP's PSG plans, Lenovo, the No. 3 PC maker, has been remarkably quiet.

Chris Frey, Lenovo's North America channel chief, said his company is not paying attention to the news.

"We're not distracted by it," Frey said. "We're so focused on the things that create momentum in the channel. We don't spend time talking about (HP PSG). We have our own goals to chase."

One of those goals is likely to be to overtake Dell as the No. 2 PC vendor. The two were separated by a mere 0.5 points of market share in the second quarter, according to Gartner. And a push to woo HP partners could help Lenovo overtake Dell.
