HP has announced the stunningly thin HP Voodoo Envy 133 laptop PC.

According to HP, the HP Voodoo Envy 133 is even thinner than Apple's already svelte MacBook Air. The HP Voodoo Envy 133 is a 'so thin it could slice you' 16mm thick, and just 1.54kg in weight.

Using an Intel Centrino chipset, the HP Voodoo Envy 133 is available in black or white. It has a 13.3in display and, like the Air, a gesture touchpad.

Also like the MacBook Air, there's no internal optical drive. But you get an external drive in the box. There's also a replaceable battery - a major step up over the Air.

In terms of connectivity there's an HDMI port, a USB port, a second shared USB/E-SATA port and a VGA webcam. The HP Voodoo Envy 133 has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and integrated mobile broadband connectivity.

The HP Voodoo Envy 133 uses the Splashtop tool, which allows users to connect to the internet without needing to boot into Windows. And by plugging an Ethernet cable into the power block, user can turn it into a point-to-point wireless router.

The HP Voodoo Envy 133 will cost $2,100 in the US. Right now there's no word on pricing and availability in the UK.
