Voodoo PC's Envy H:171: blood red

The widescreen model offers gamers the opportunity to customise the machine with colours, tattoos and the hardware specs, but the basic model comes with Intel's 2.93GHz Core 2 Extreme X6800 and 4GB of DDR 2 memory.

The Envy also comes with a 160GB Seagate 7200rpm hard drive as standard, but if you're really looking to turn heads then you'll be pleased to know that up to three HDDs can be combined to provide up to a whopping 600GB of storage. An 8x DVD writer is also included as standard.

The 17in screen is driven by an Nvidia GeForce Go 7950 video chip, with 512MB graphics memory, but even this can be doubled to ramp up your on-screen performance. The 17in panel provides 1920 x 1200 pixels.

Connectivity comes courtesy of Bluetooth and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. A seven-in-one memory card reader is also built in, while the whole system runs on Windows XP Professional as standard.

The Envy H:171 is available now, but won't make your bank manager envious because prices start at around $5000 (£2440/€3618).
