If you’re the type of PC gamer that doesn’t have a comfortable chair to sit on in front of your computer and would rather play games on your more comfortable couch, then the Razer Turret may just be the ticket to your specific needs. It is the company’s super portable gaming keyboard that can be used on your lap. Aside from being a wireless keyboard, there is an extension of sorts found on the right of the device that makes for a mouse pad. But if you don’t want the mouse pad and would just want to do some chatting with your friends while still on your couch, you can do by folding it into the device without much hassle, if there is any.
The Razer Turret is Your Complete PC Gaming Battle Station for Your Lap
The Razer Turret was originally shown as a concept back at CES 2015, and is now available for purchase for US and UK customers. When looking at it at first glance, it does look like your ordinary wireless keyboard, but it does have a special quirk – a foldable mouse pad that turns this into your very own gaming battle station for your lap. This means that you can move away from your computer chair and onto a comfier couch while still being able to do all your gaming.
It is presented in that classic Razer design, which means there’s a lot of black with green trimmings going on. As for the actual keyboard itself, the Turret has the typical chiclet-key affiar. However, it has two extra Android buttons for Home and Back. This is when you would want to pair the keyboard with an Android smartphone or tablet. When clicking on the keyboard keys, they are easy enough to press and the spacing between them is good.
The mouse pad, however, only folds to the right. Therefore, those who are use to using the mouse with their left hands should shy away now and look for other options on the market. But for righties, this computer peripheral may just be right up your alley.
Quite possibly the coolest feature of the Razer Turret is not that you can bring it along with you while you laze around on your couch, but with its bundled charging dock as you can charge both the keyboard and an Orochi mouse at the same time. Perhaps the only major downside to this device is the price. Since the company is known for making high-end gaming peripherals, then that trend continues here.
