Hewlett Packard, the world leader in laptops (in terms of sales) has its own series of PDAs, less popularly known to the common man. The I-PAQ PDAs sold by HP does not rank among the top 10 PDA brands in terms of sales.

The demand for faster calculations can’t be met by only relying on the speed increase resulting from advances in computer technology as high end super computers are that much costly. One of the solutions to this problem for ‘not-so-deep-pockets’ is the distribution of the numerical tasks to a set of machines. So how to provide supercomputer capabilities cheaply? The answer is Beowolf Clusters. This process is called parallelization because the computers complete their tasks in parallel instead of the traditional step‐by‐step (serial) execution. As computer codes have been updated to use this new paradigm, the demand for parallel computers has grown.
