Razer’s The Old Republic Keyboard & Peripherals

Or basically, the Razer Blade laptop without the laptop. With Jedi powers. Perhaps building onto already existing technology that was developed for their overpriced exquisitely designed laptop with a gimped powerful GTX 555M, Razer has brought that concept to gaming keyboards. The Star Wars: The Old Republic themed peripheral is part of a series that also features a headset, Naga-based mouse, and mousepad:
