Which of these major names in tech is the better buy today?

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.
