HP Gets Voodoo

Remember when there were about a 100 PC companies duking it out back in the late 80s and early 90s? Excluding the Asian manufacturers, you can now probably count them all on two hands, maybe one. And now there is one less. In the first substantive news out of Palo Alto outside of the pretexting mess, HP today scooped up Canadian gaming PC manufacturer Voodoo Computers.

Looks like they are getting the entertainment religion. This is a good move for HP. While the unit volumes in this space are tiny, you have to think the margins on a high end $5,000 gaming system start with a crooked number, like a four or five versus a LOT lower for a pedestrian consumer box.

Very cool Voodoo community.

Interesting blog by Voodoo’s Rahul Sood, too where he talks about “Project Vampire” unfolding. These guys are doing to have some fund spending a little bit of HP Labs’ mega R&D budget.
