Hewlett-Packard is renewing its focus on the small and medium business market with a range of new products, services and financing options. Based on reports published on eWEEK and InternetNews.com, a picture of the various offerings has emerged.

It's clear that HP has put much thought into its offerings. Key areas such as storage, computing and networking are addressed - and not with second-grade offerings or as an afterthought either. As it is, small and medium businesses looking to upgrade their existing equipment for growth will be pleased with the financing options available.
Interestingly though, it appears that HP has not come out with any new desktops. Is this another confirmation of the impending demise of the desktop, perhaps?
