HP to buy Compaq for $25 billion

Author: JT Smith

CNET: "Hewlett-Packard will acquire Compaq Computer in a stock swap worth about $25 billion, the companies
announced late Monday.

The deal, one of the largest in technology history, would merge two of the biggest names in computers, printers and
computer servers, and would have total revenue only slightly less than IBM, the largest computer company."
