The Voodoo Envy 133 is a soon to be released ultra-slim laptop from HP that competes directly with the Apple Macbook Air. The Envy is a 0.7" thick and weighs 3.43 lbs and, thus, is technically thinner than the Air; The Macbook Air has a tapered design with its thickness varying from 0.16" to 0.76", where the Envy uses all right-angles giving it a constant thickness. The Envy is built on a Centrino CPU with your choice of Intel Core 2 Duo SP7700 (1.8GHz) or SP7500 (1.6 GHz) with 4 MB L2 Cache, and 800 MHz FSB. It will also be sold with two storage options: 1) 64 GB solid state drive or 2) 80 GB 42000 RPM hard drive. Unique features found in the Envy are its carbon-fiber case, a power brick that doubles as a wireless access point (Aura PowerConnect), and an instant-on feature that allows users to browse the web and make Skype calls without booting to Windows (Voodoo IO). The availability of the Envy is not yet known, but pre-production models are starting to appear with pricing expected to be around $2100
