SAN FRANCISCO Thu May 22, 2014 3:44pm EDT

SAN FRANCISCO May 22 (Reuters) - PC maker Hewlett-Packard Co posted a bigger-than-expected 1 percent drop in quarterly revenue, as it struggles to maintain its grip on a shrinking personal computer market while protecting profit margins.

It marked the 11th straight quarterly revenue decline for HP. The company, the world's largest maker of personal computers, recorded sales of $27.3 billion in its fiscal second quarter, ended April 30, just shy of the $27.41 billion Wall Street expected.
