VoodooPC, a popular maker of high-performance personal computers (PCs) for enthusiasts, has launched two new product lines called Doll and Idol. The new systems are small, sleek, are expected to be quiet, but are not projected to deliver performance inline with the company’s high-speed systems. Such an unexpected product launch outlines that consumers may not be looking forward the highest speed, but for style and comfort from their PCs.

VoodooPC’s Doll computers resemble typical cube-like small form-factor (SFF) PC barebones from companies like AOpen or Shuttle, which have become incredibly popular within the recent years. The VoodooPC Doll product line  consists of several models aiming at different types of computer users: gamers, office users and workstation users, who all have different requirements for performance, but are not looking forward the absolutely fastest computers money can buy. Pricing of Doll systems starts at $1800.

For gamers VoodooPC offers AMD Athlon 64 processors along with up to a couple of NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT graphics cards for premium speed. Office users may choose Intel Pentium 4 processors as well as graphics cards like the GeForce 6600 GT. Those who buy workstations may pick up dual low-power AMD Opteron-based setup along with NVIDIA Quadro FX-based graphics cards. The chassis of the Doll systems resemble those made by IWILL manufacturer.

VoodooPC Idol computer is a truly small Apple Mac mini-alike personal computer based on Intel Pentium M processors and featuring a core-logic with integrated graphics. The Voodoo Idol looks exactly like AOpen’s Cube Mini computer barebone demonstrated at Computex trade-show in Taipei, Taiwan in mid-2005.. Starting price of the Idol is $900, users can configure case colours as well as acquire additional accessories. The Idol is designed for casual users who do not need truly serious performance, but would like to have a stylish box that can play music, videos, browse the Internet and perform other everyday tasks.
