Uphill climb for Hewlett-Packard and Compaq

Author: JT Smith

From The Industry Standard: "Up to now, Hewlett-Packard and Compaq
Computer, which announced plans to merge on
Sept. 3, have had little luck keeping pace with
Dell, whose lean direct-sales model has made it
the low-cost PC producer. Becoming more
competitive will be among their biggest
challenges as they try to convince a skeptical Wall Street their proposed
$17 billion merger, which the companies got back to work on after a week of
helping customers disrupted by terrorist attacks against U.S. targets last
week, will pay off."
