Inside HP This Week

PC Market: German PC seller Medion has come up with a plan that's so 
efficient HP has hired it to help manage the production of its PCs in 
Europe. Medion-which has no stores, warehouses or factories of its own- 
lists nearly $3 billion in annual revenue. It does so by hiring hardware 
suppliers to build a predetermined number of PCs that it predicts it 
can sell in one or two weeks at local supermarkets. It then advertises 
the sales, which it holds several times a year, in newspaper inserts and 
watches the product fly off the shelves.
