This sure comes as a surprise though, considering eBay's huge popularity among internet buyers some new market may be exploited by the hardware manufacturer indeed.

Initially, the HP Store will offer refurbished PCs, workstations, servers, handhelds, printers and accessories. The items will consist mainly of canceled orders and returned products that have never been removed from their original packaging.

Perhaps we will start seeing some hot deals on the new HP 'Factory Outlet', give it a look here.
