Description

HP Inc. is an American manufacturer of personal computers, printers, and related accessories. It was formed from the PC and printer divisions of the original Hewlett-Packard Company, which became defunct in 2015.

History

The original Hewlett-Packard Company was founded in 1939 as a partnership in Palo Alto by two Stanford graduates. The first financially-successful product was the HP200A, a precision audio oscillator. HP was incorporated in 1947 and went on public in 1957.
In the 1960s, HP gradually became a leading manufacturer of minicomputers for scientific, business, and industrial markets. These evolved into desktop computers.
In 1984, HP introduced inkjet and laser printers. It registered the HP.com domain name in 1986, the 9th .com ever to be registered.
HP expanded its computer business to target consumers in the 1990s. By the end of the decade, all businesses not related to computers, storage, and imaging were spun off from HP to form Agilent Technologies.
In 2001, HP merged with Compaq. In the decade that followed, HP saw a series of setbacks. In 2015, it spun off its server, storage, and networking business into Hewlett Packard Enterprise. The PC business became HP Inc.
