The thing you need to understand is that HP is a very disorganized company right now.  10 years ago they were about quality and integrity.  Then this switched to innovation and brand name recognition.  5 years ago they threw this out the window and decided to leverage their brand name.  Buying Voodoo was a perfect example of this new vision for the company.

It's no news that HP has been trashing the Voodoo label since they acquired them awhile back...

The HP Envy PC's are just absolute and utter garbage. Pretty rip-offs of the macbook air, with shitty integrated graphics and dual-core processors sporting a $3,000 price-tag.

It's like making a Ferrari and putting a standard 2.4 litre engine in it, and selling it for $100,000 because 'it's a ferrari'.

Way to kill a legendary brand HP

Couldn't agree more, it's disgusting what HP did to that brand.

This really isn't that surprising. 

Apparently, HP has no idea what to do with the gaming and ultra-high-end markets.

We run the article on Voodoo's origami master, the man behind Rahul's insane wiring jobs.
