With a new CEO at hand, HP may be thinking twice about separating from its Personal Systems Group division.

As reported by Electronista, sources close to WSJ claim that the costs associated with the breakup procedure are estimated to be much more than the savings HP would experience. It is the PSG unit that allows HP to produce hardware at competitive prices in the first place, the sources say. A final decision is still expected before the end of the year or even this month.

HP’s failed webOS platform continues to be up in the air for grabs. While no takers have officially come forth, there have been rumblings of a possible acquisition from Amazon.

HP is currently the world’s largest computer manufacturer at an estimated 15 million PC shipments during Q2 2011. Its announcement mid-August of dropping webOS and possibly selling off the PC division took many by surprise. The recent confusion surrounding the future of both divisions implies that HP is at odds with how to best handle its current assets and resources.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
