"When I came in, 65 percent of our directors and above were outside hires. Now it’s the reverse," says Meg Whitman in an interview, discussing the management changes H-P (HPQ +0.2%) has seen since she took over. Whitman admits margins for tablets and hybrids "aren't as good" as PC margins, but argues higher peripherals/services attach rates make up for it (but can H-P obtain a share comparable to its ~16% PC share?). She also says H-P will "consider getting back in the acquisition business," and reiterates the IT giant won't follow Dell into a price war (previous). Also: H-P has rolled out several new business desktops powered by Intel's Haswell CPUs.
