Creating a notebook from ground up is never easy as it seems. Lenovo took quite some time with their Lenovo X300 ThinkPad, and now HP's Voodoo gaming division have done something similar with their latest, shiniest and very pretty Voodoo Envy 133. Measuring a thin 0.7-inches (1.77cm) and weighing in at 3.4 pounds (1.54kg) on a carbon-fiber chassis and featuring a 13.3-inch LED backlit display, the Envy's compact frame and features looks set to give its competitors a run for their money. As for connectivity options, the Envy is no slouch in this department either as you'll be spoilt for choice with wireless, LAN, USB and HDMI.

Let's take a look, shall we?
