On a year of trends to go mobile with a variety of offers to pick from, I must admit that I get sometimes amazed with alternatives that reinforce the desktop world.
One of these alternatives is this keyboard by Razor:
Man, I love the design and the concept. Some specs:
- 4.05” touch screen able to run widget apps.
- Track pad with gesture support.
- 10 dynamic display keys with 80hz response time.
- Chiclet style key caps.
- Tri-colour backlit keys.
- 1000Hz Ultrapolling.
- Fully programmable keys with on the fly macro recording.
- Razer Synapse 2.0 enabled.
- Dedicated Gaming mode.
- 5 additional macro keys.
- Anti-ghosting capability for up to 10 simultaneous key presses.
- Braided fiber cable.
- Fixed wrist rest.
- PC with USB port.
- Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP.
This is really a nice, handy and interesting product. If only it supports the upcoming Windows 8 and Surface tablets it would far from perfect.
The only drawback, like in any top-notch product long before it becomes standard, is its initial retail price -currently at U$S 249.99- which may result prohibitive for many.
I would love to see future editions of this keyboard where all its keys get dynamic-displayed.
As a side note to desktops, another nice product to mention are Razor’s Blade notebooks, which integrate the above-mentioned keyboard solution, flawlessly.
Again, everything goes well until you see the prices, which start beyond U$S 2 thd., without VAT and shipping costs.
I cannot wait to see what Razor will come up with next; don’t you? Not to mention to get one of these, if I ever get to afford buying one.
