Now that HP owns Voodoo, they have been changed into a 'lifestyle' brand and are targeted at a market similar to Apple. The Envy 133 is the first notebook produced from this new focus, and apart from the lack of any citrus themed logos, it is a carbon fibre version of a Macbook Air. They also have a full sized system, the Omen, which will run about $10,000 and require an invitation from Voodoo to purchase. Otherwise; no Omen for you. Check out the full specs at AnandTech.

While touring the ASUS booth this morning I noticed a notebook on display that didn't have a name attached to it or a PR person assigned to guard it. It was big, it looked new and at first glace had no outstanding features. But there was one VERY interesting little addition seen upon further review...
When it rains, it pours
ASUS has made a name for itself with everyday consumers with the Eee PC line of mini-notebooks. Now that competition is circling in from just about everyone else in the industry, ASUS is updating their product line with two new models.

Acer's Aspire 6920G is really into multimedia, both making it look good, and making it easy to view. It has a 16" screen, at 1366x768 resolution (aka 16:9) and a 'CineDash' a touch sensitive section of the keyboard to make playing movies easy as well as full 5.1 sound. It is a choice for those looking not for the lightest or the most powerful, but for those wanting to watch a few movies while they are on the go.

At two centimetres thick and 1.42kgs, or less than an inch and just a hair over 3lbs, the Lenovo ThinkPad X300 has a lot going for it. A 13", 1440x900 screen, Intel C2D SL7100 and 1GB PC2-5300 DDR2 give it some nice power, but the real bonus is that Lenovo managed to get an ultra slim DVD burner in it.
