Gaming PCs in the Enterprise: HP’s Blackbird PWNED You
The Voodoo guys pillaged ideas from servers and workstations, created a case design that could only be built by an automotive company, and ended up with the highest level of technology in a PC (or workstation) on the planet. This became the Blackbird. – Rob Enderle

Hewlett-Packard is looking to cast a spell on the PC gaming industry with its first product developed with Voodoo PC. – Erica Ogg
HP Blackbird 002

HP's Blackbird 002 earns the highest rating this editor has ever given a desktop PC. Its design rivals the Apple Mac Pro, it takes risks that benefit your upgrade path, it's fast, and it's competitively priced. If you can afford it, and you want a high-end gaming PC, buy this one. End of story. – Rich Brown

HP Blackbird 002
Sleek like its reconnaissance-plane namesake, the HP Blackbird 002 is poised to excel on a specialized mission: ruling the game grid. – Joel Santo Domingo
A combination of innovative design, the intelligent picking and choosing of features from the newly merged companies, and a stealth introduction of a product without the rivals catching on and copying it beforehand all speak volumes about how the HP/Voodoo collaboration is working out. – Joel Santo Domingo
The Inquirer
Voodoo’s Blackbird spreads its wings
REMEMBER ALIENWARE? It used to be a high end gaming computer maker that was bought by Dell and smothered into obscurity. Sad. HP bought Voodoo to form VoodooHP, and with the launch of its first product, the Blackbird 002, it is clear that this hasn't happened at HP. – Charlie Demerjian
