HP's big new bet, and why it could win

HP's big new bet

Hewlett-Packard's big bet on 3-D printing is likely to pay off, and not because consumers are fascinated by a fad, according to one tech expert.

HP could actually stand to make more money than companies like Makerbot, which has opened up shops at malls across the country to appeal to consumers, simply because HP is going after business customers instead of the average Joe, according to Mike Prospero, reviews editor at Laptop Mag.
