The Lycosa keyboards by Razer are very popular and carry a distinctive style. However, their looks might not appeal to everyone. Because of that fact, the company has now made available two new options for consumers: the Arctosa and the Mirror.
3K Computers have finally got around to launching their Eee-rival, renaming it in the process from the Longitude 400 to the RazerBook 400. More interesting, however, is the price adjustment: it now carries a MRSP of just $299. For that, you get a 7-inch screen, sub-2lb weight, 4GB of flash storage (for a claimed 8 second boot) and 400MHz processor.
So you bought yourself that new fancy mouse that Razer released yesterday, that occupies your lightening quick reflexes on your right hand, now you need something for your left hand. Well, Belkin has upgraded their n52 SpeedPad by letting Razer in on the action to work their performance enhancing magic and now we have the n52te for your left hand.
The response time on this mouse is 1ms, that’s one millisecond, a speed at which the mouse could not be controlled by a human being. Even better yet, the DPI is extremely high at 1800 dots per inch.
Those two facts combined mean this $35 gaming mouse will not only move very, very fast, but will also move with an extreme amount of precision. The only downside to owning one of these mice is that you’ll no longer be able to blame your piss poor gaming performance on slow hardware.
Razer have officially announced at CES the Mako 2.1 THX-certified gaming speaker system that James went head over heals for back in October, and I hope he's been saving up his pocket money since bi-amped, 2.1 audio with Class HD amplifiers apparently don't come cheap. Setting the price at $399.99 or €399.99 in Europe, each satellite speaker pumps out 50W and the total system power is 300W.
So you buy this device, there is a $200 model that does SATA and PATA/IDE and will do multiple passes, you know, just to make sure. Then there is a $100 model that does single pass and only PATA/IDE, anyways, you buy one of these, hook it up to your hard drive of choice, flip the switch, and you are off.
Yes, you are off erasing your data from the hard drive, whether you are selling it, giving it away, or throwing it away and just want to make sure, its always a good idea to format your drives. Granted you or I would probably just use some software program on our new computers, but if you work with a lot of hard drives that need to be cleaned, this might be a good investment.
This 2.1 PC speaker system is absolutely amazing. Would you believe this thing will crank out 300 watts?
Furthermore its THX certified, and have a Class HD amplifier to power everything. On top of that there are THX Slot Speaker technology integrated into the system with its downward firing mids and highs.
The other day we saw an interesting gaming keyboard from Belkin that was an all-or-nothing setup. Basically, it was good for hardcore gamers, but you still needed to have a separate keyboard just for typing. Here's a new one from Razer that goes to the other end of the spectrum.
