WSJ: IBM mulls sale of x86 server ops


IBM (IBM) is again exploring a sale of its low-end x86 server business, the WSJ reports, with Dell a potential a suitor.

IBM was in talks to sell the unit to Lenovo in Spring last year, but negotiations broke down over price. The Chinese company valued the operations at less than $2.5B.

The latest report comes after sales of IBM's x86 servers fell 18% on year in Q3 in what was a tough overall year for the company's hardware division.

    Huawei would be another interesting option although, like Lenovo, it would kill any government or telco accounts in the US.

    The long slow death of IBM continues.
