Better Tech Buy Today: HP or Dell?

In this video, Andrew Tonner explains his reason for preferring Dell over Hewlett-Packard for short-term returns. In a nutshell, Dell is in the midst of a takeover fight that will probably drive the stock higher. That said, if any buyout deal falls through, the stock could dive pretty quickly, too. HP, meanwhile, is still in the midst of a turnaround. The company remains heavily exposed to the declining PC market, and there's no guarantee that Meg Whitman's tough decisions will resurrect HP.

Check out the video for further details.

But does this make HP one of the least-appreciated turnaround stories on the market, or is this a minor blip on its road to irrelevance?
