Corporate Consolidation in Hitech

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.

Hi Dave, For more than a year, Dell has been at the forefront of integrating gaming technologies into high-end PCs, like our new XPS line. So HP is now starting to catch up...or at least put some people inplace that might help, with no real commitments to deliver. VooDoo has a long way to go inside HP, especially since we at Dell already "get it" and Michael leads that charge, as a gamer himself. YOu can fiind more informataion at our own blog or my comments to Rahul.
