HP Voodoo Firefly Concept Gaming Laptop Pictured

Having absorbed Voodoo PC, HP is going full-cylinders with its gaming PC lineup. It has not overlooked gaming notebooks either. In the works is the HP Firefly, a gaming notebook with exclusive features, driven by bleeding edge hardware in a stylish chassis. The Firefly is in a concept design phase, with working prototypes being readied for events such as the upcoming CES expo.

To run you through with the features, the top lid of the notebook holds a 17" main LCD with a native resolution of 1920x1200. The lid also holds a small 4" screen with a resolution of 800x400, which can be used as a HUD or a secondary utility display. Also mounted are front speakers and a night-vision webcam. The business end of the notebook holds an illuminated keyboard with a right-hand placed track-pad. The exterior of the notebook has some techno-themed motifs printed or engraved. Under the hood is a quad-core Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9xxx CPU clocked at 2.40 GHz, 4 GB of memory, and a graphics subsystem consisting of two ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 GPUs in CrossFire. Two 250GB hard-drives operate in RAID 0 for storage. There is a Blu-Ray drive provided. Creative SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio handles 6-channel audio with game audio effects processing and Dolby Digital output capabilities. We will learn more about this notebook come CES.

Shame this wont be available to retail, concept prototypes only. Mind you, I dont think the extra screen is needed, would have been better setup like the G15 displays.

Agreed, makes the screen look terrible plus makes the laptop much larger.. :shadedshu

Would have been better if they had just put a small pop-up lcd screen like on the G15 v1 which came out on lower half of the laptop (if they really need that extra screen though, if you are in need of a small screen to help you play the game i'd have thought a mouse instead of a trackpad and a gaming keyboard with a proper layout would have been higher up the requirements list).

well at least its just a concept that means they can change it when they get feedback about the horrid small screen.
