    HP Buys VooDoo Computers

    I see that HP has acquired Voodoo, which is out of Canada.

    Another article on this said that HP wanted to tap into the lucrative high-end computer sales market. The stats say that high end gaming machines go for about $5,000 US, while the average "regular" machine is about $800 US.

    So what do we think? With Dell buyiung Alienware and HP buying Voodoo, will these big, generic companies bring better prices to the boutique companies because of purchasing power? What about customer support, better or worse? I personally don't buy my computers from manufacturers, but if I did, I would prefer to buy from one of the smaller companies.

    The article that I read said that VooDoo only had 30-35 employees. That really is a boutique.
