PC Hardware-Related Companies Buy Out Season
By Gabriel Torres on July 24, 2006 - 10:00 AM


I think all PC hardware-related companies are for sale these days. In almost 20 years in the business Iíve never seen so many merger and acquisitions involving big players at the same time. That is the life of a high-competitive industry with very small profit margins. Here is a small retrospect of what happened recently.

There is also a rumor dated back 2003 that Gigabyte and MSI would merge, which regained some strenght last month after DigiTimes published a piece called "Industry makers concerned about potential Gigabyte and MSI consolidation".

If there is any other merger or acquisition missing on this list, please let us know.

The big question now is: which company in the PC hardware industry will be the next one to be sold? Any guesses?
