Voodoo makes expensive high-end PCs for gamers and PC enthusiasts, often with flashy designs and cases. This is a relatively small portion of the PC market, but it yields higher margins than the mainstream market. Customers of companies like Voodoo, Alienware and Falcon Northwest are thought to wield influence over less tech-savvy friends and colleagues.
