HP to close VoodooPC?

Techgage heard from a reliable source that HP is planning to close its VoodooPC division.
According to an insider close to the situation, VoodooPC as we know it might not be around for much longer. An e-mail is apparently being circulated throughout the company noting layoffs, although the number of people to be culled is unclear. However, VoodooPC itself wouldn't have that many employees to begin with, so any layoffs could be a sign of what's to come.

In addition, it's become known that VoodooPC has been returning product to their suppliers, such as Topower, their provider of power supplies. Topower has received over 300 of their supplies back, which doesn't seem like much in the grand scheme, but Voodoo is known to sell less than 100 of their Omen desktop machines per month, and that's the only product where a full power supply would be used.
HP bought the luxury PC maker VoodooPC two years ago.
