The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and industrials editor/analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.

Andrew and Brendan looks at tech heavyweight Hewlett-Packard in today's edition of the Fool's series "Should You Love This Dow Stock?"

However, CEO Meg Whitman has pledged to right the ship and return this once-iconic company to its former glory.

With effectively zero presence in mobile, HP needs to make serious inroads into the major growth areas in order to avoid its slide to irrelevance. Listen on to see if HP has what it takes.
