While HP is not 'sponsored' by Microsoft beyond the usual 'loyalty discounts' and 'sponsored advertising' which are used to lock in the OEMs, the report produced by HP on Munich was entirely paid for by Microsoft.

It thus said what Microsoft wanted it to say. In order to allege that the costs were higher than Munich claimed HP added such costs as replacement computers when Munich actually recycled existing computers.
