Rumor: Samsung to sell its laptop business

Rumor: Samsung to sell its laptop business Samsung has been reorganizing its company structure and even buying some important assets this year but it seems like there might be quite a bombshell still incoming.
A Korean finance and business paper The Bell has it that Samsung is negotiating selling its personal computer business. Rumors say that the Korean company is looking to close a deal with Lenovo.

The Chinese manufacturer is the largest manufacturer of PCs in the world and would seem like a logical buyer.

Traditional computer business has been slowly declining and Samsung's PC business is no different. Recent problems with smartphones meant that Samsung's other divisions have to carry the weight even more.

This fall Samsung told that it was selling the printer business to HP and buying the audio and car entertainment system manufacturer Harman for $8 billion.

How is this possible that they are the "largest PC maker"??? I can't recall a desktop they make........haven't seen the tiny thin laptops they used to make in years.......


I don't think this is true.

Samsung makes shit electronics anyway with seriously low and questionable reliability.

Anyone would be a fool to buy Samsung at this junction in their failing status.

The article is stating Lenovo is the largest PC maker in the world. And they are.
