HP Voodoo 15in Notebook

HP is developing its first mid-size Voodoo PC-branded notebook since the reinvention of the label earlier in the year, a slip from within the PC builder claims. The system would be HP's first known high-end portable to carry a 15.6-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio display and will use an LED backlight that should both slim down the display and improve battery life. The system is reportedly due to ship during the summer and so is a candidate for Intel's mobile Core i7 processors.

The company is also set to launch business models with same-size displays. Some more conventional 15.4-inch, 16:10 notebooks are also due, though the balance between these and the wider models isn't known.

HP is nonetheless set to switch much of its lineup to the new ratio, the leak suggests. Out of the 37 million to 38 million notebooks estimated to ship for HP during the year, roughly half (17 million to 18 million) are due to use the display type.
