Intel Air inside?


HP has announced its new Voodoo branded ultra mobile Envy 133 notebook. With its small dimensions and thin carbon fiber case this baby will put some serious pressure on Jobs's overhyped Air.

The carbon fiber case weighs 1.53kg and comes with a 13.3-inch 1280x800 LED backlit screen. HP also included a high-quality backlit keyboard, multi-gesture touchpad, HDMI port, Webcam, WiFi, Bluetooth and much more. The new Envy 133 can be powered by either a Core 2 Duo SP7700 working at 1.8GHz or SP7500 working at 1.6GHz. On the graphics side, Envy packs Intel's X3100 IGP and it 133 can be equipped with either an 80GB 4200 RPM HDD or a 64GB SSD.

According to the video where Rahul Sood said that the Envy 133 uses the 20 Watts "off road chip," one can only conclude that it is the same "custom chip" that can be found inside Apple's MacBook Air, as it has the same 4MB of L2 cache in combination with the 800MHz FSB. But we will have to wait for someone to rip it apart just to make sure.

The Voodoo Envy 133 also comes with Voodoo IOS, that is basically DeviceVM's Splashtop, which can be found on Asus's motherboards, but slightly customized by the Voodoo team.

With the price tag starting at US $2,099 this Voodoo branded ultra mobile beast should start selling on June 27th.
