Packard Bell Sold by NEC to the Chinese - Next Up, Derr?

After NEC's selling off of Packard Bell to eMachines co-founder and Chinese entrepreneur Lap Shun Hui, the count of Chinese-owned PC manufacturers is now officially at two (the other is Lenovo). Then again, it's not like anybody has purchased a Packard Bell desktop since 1994, but this move may signal a re-entry into the market, possibly on the low, low, eMachine-low-end of desktop sales by a once dominant force.

Next up, Michaer Derr changes his name and sells his company, putting this lame joke out of commission for good.
