However, the company put the dip down to a big tax gain which was recorded in the same period last year.

Looking ahead, HP expects to rack up a record $100bn in sales this year.

Sales in the quarter rose 13% to $25.53bn as demand for personal computers, including laptops and servers soared.

In its lucrative imaging and printing group, revenues also rose 6% to $7.2bn.

Tis good see HP doing well, they make some wonderful products and are one of the few manufacturers of PC's I would buy.
