When you add back the impairment charges taken in 2012 of $16.8 billion then you have an EPS of $2.10. That results in a P/E ratio below 6, which is absurd in my opinion. They are more than just computers, having 7 lines of businesses. I believe that Meg Whitman has cleaned up the books and I don't expect any more impairment charges. Plus they pay a dividend of more than 4%, so I expect this stock to have a nice run in 2013.
