Hitachi is bowing out of the consumer PC market due to sluggish sales. They will, however, continue to manufacture server-based computers for businesses while attempting to refocus energies around their core competencies. Of course, with Lenovo, HP, and Dell dominating global (and domestic Japan) sales, things don't look too promising for the likes of NEC or Fujitsu either. Really, what can you expect with desktops this hideous.
