    Yea, I kinda want this if they pull it off...

    Razer's new toy.

    The Razer Switch Blade



    Gaming on the Razer™ Switchblade is an experience unlike that found on standard PCs and laptops when the dynamic tactile keyboard presents the control-scheme of any video game visually and right at your fingertips.

    When you start up any game, the keyboard intelligently recognizes the game's specific interface and transposes the interactive visual elements such as command icons and control schemes right to the mechanical keys. Depending on the situation in-game, the keyboard can also change on-the-fly to give you only the controls you need.

    And as the tactile keys are transparent to a vibrant, crisp display panel underneath, you'll see those familiar icons in their original art design, bringing the game interface closer to you.

    The keys change to QWERTY if needed to.

    That is really cool. I am not sure that I could actually use it but its still really cool.
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.

    Warcraft Lore has gone from one of the most vast and interesting stories in all of gaming to a bad Thrall Fanfic by Chris Metzen.

    The problem with gaming on latop was never the keyboard layout. It has always been and still is, the size of the screen. You can play games with 17" screen, but its not gaming.

    I play various games on my laptop, like WoW and LoL, and i play them fine, don't really see a difference tbh, it's still gaming

    TBH just gief a cheaper version of the optimus maximus keyboard. I'd effing love one of them. No need for the screen or computer parts. That one in particular looks like the keys are a little bit too small/cramped, unless they used a giant to hold it.

    However the concept of LEDs in the keys is a fantastic one. I have a x-keys board which is a nice tactile mechanical keyboard with little clear caps on the keys to insert your own picture. It's fantastic, but only works for one character, it's too much hassle to keep changing they pics, and seeing the wrong icons is off putting. But with 56 keys (model dependant) it has more than enough room to totally replace my keyboard, except for chat. There's no real reason why I couldn't rebind and remap half the keys to buttons but I'm too lazy for that

    If it had a mobile i7 processor in it and the screen size was a little bigger, I'd instantly buy one when/if Razer released it.

    I really hope it doesn't have intel graphics card.

    Personally, I would prefer a real Laptop, but even I admit that that seems impressive. But its coming was expected seeing how powerful Cell Phones are getting.

    Any Laptop doesn't work for gaming IMO. even if they got the keyboard and mouse right, the screen is still small and being attached to the keyboard hurts performance I think.
