Voodoo, a high-end personal computer business unit of Hewlett Packard, has announced the world’s thinnest notebook to date. The Voodoo Envy 133 is among the first laptops which resembles Intel Metro notebook concept that was developed by Intel Corp. and Zibra Design and should be followed by a breed of “razor-thin” mobile computers.

The new Voodoo Envy 133 just 1.79cm/0.7” in height. By comparison, Apple MacBook Air has 0.4cm – 1.94cm/0.16” – 0.76” height, whereas Lenovo ThinkPad X300’s thickest part is 2.34cm/0.92” and the thinnest part is 1.85cm/0.73”. Still, the Envy 133 is the heaviest among the three: it weighs 1.53Kgs (3.373lbs) despite of carbon fiber case. All three notebooks come with 13.3” screen with 1280x800 resolution, but Apple’s Air and Envy 133 come without integrated optical disk drive, unlike Lenovo’s X300.

Intel and Zibra-designed Metro notebook is 0.7” (1.778 centimeters) thick and has 2.25 pounds (1.02 kilograms) weight, the thickness very close to that of Motorola Razr and weight that barely exceeds that of a handbag.

Voodoo Envy 133 is based on Intel GM965 core-logic with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 and may be equipped with Intel Core 2 Duo SP7700 or SP7500 (1.80GHz or 1.60GHz) processor as well as up to 2GB of memory. Depending on configuration, the novelty may be equipped with a low-power 80GB hard disk drive or 64GB solid state drive. In addition, users can plug-in additional storage devices via a USB 2.0 port or e-SATA/USB 2.0 combo power.  The laptop is equipped with Wi-Fi 802.11a/g/n and Bluetooth wireless technologies.

Voodoo Envy 133 will be available later in June for starting price of $2099.
