Samsung Electronics said Wednesday that it has no intention of taking over Hewlett-Packard's HPQ -0.08% personal computer business.
The comment came amid market speculation that the South Korean electronics giant may buy H-P's PC business after the U.S. firm last week unveiled plans to sell or spin off its personal-computer business.
