Corporate Consolidation in Hitech
By DaveLevy on Sep 29, 2006
Good Grief! CNET News reports that HP are to buy Voodoo PC. (See here...). When HP's wintel rival Dell bought Alienware earlier , I commented on my blog, that I thought or hoped that Alienware's system design expertise would be safe inside Dell's corporate mantle and even that I had found some value in Dell's self help resources. There is no doubt in my mind that like Sun these two companies design and build superior systems. This'll be interesting to see if Voodoo is valued for its design expertise or only its customer base - maybe its seen as an ink demand creation investment , but it does mean that these games platforms will get into the shops.
