Toshiba in talks to sell PC business to Taiwan's Asus

Japanese tech giant hopes to shed drag on profits while shoring up finances

Asus likely hopes to generate synergies with the Toshiba operations.

TOKYO -- Toshiba has entered into negotiations to sell its money-losing personal computer operations to Asustek Computer of Taiwan, continuing to shed noncore businesses to get its tattered finances back in order.

Asus, now a minor player in corporate PC sales, likely hopes for synergies with the Toshiba business, which has a strong American and European presence. China's Lenovo Group has also expressed interest, which could complicate the talks.
