Make them lay you off! Make HP pay a hefty price to get rid of you if the management wasn't willing to pay to keep you. Attrition at this point helps nobody but the management. What do you have to lose if you wait a bit longer to make sure you're not leaving good money behind for no good reason?

Not everyone can time a new job offer perfectly with their layoff. Better to take the new job when you get it and quit rather than waiting for a layoff and possibly not have a new job.
The job market right now is not good in IT. And if your primary work experience the last 10 years or more has been exclusively HP, you’re in an even worse situation UNLESS you have been able to gain significant experience with Cloud. If all you know are PCs and printers, your job opportunities are poor.
You will be well served to look for other jobs now rather than waiting for HP to axe you. You will need the extra runway to find a job, but if you wait until HP WFRs you, it will be even tougher to find a job since employers generally don’t like to hire someone who got layed off by another company.
