The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and consumer-goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition of the Fool's series "Should You Love This Dow Stock?" Andrew and Austin sit down to discuss the particulars of IBM. The company, about as big a blue chip as you'll find in tech, certainly has a powerful business model. And while mature, the company also continues to demonstrate an impressive dedication to remaining forward-looking. Its powerful business model (hardware sells software, which sells services) is the envy of many large, less diversified competitors. The company also received a vote of confidence recently, with Warren Buffett himself buying a substantial stake in the tech giant. Listen in to this video article to see whether IBM has what it takes to continue to generate strong returns into the future.
