This is Mad Catz's $300 S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 gaming keyboard. It has more bells and whistles than a bell and whistle factory and is definitely nicer than my laptop's keyboard, but only because my F and M keys are broken and I have to copy/paste them out of a Notepad document whenever I need to use them. "Get a new computer." Oh snap, I didn't realize Mr. Moneybags reads Geekologie. YOU GET ME ONE THEN.
Taking inspiration from the company's modular R.A.T. gaming mouse, the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 boasts a durable metal body, mechanical keys, and five interchangeable components (including the keyboard): a V.E.N.O.M. TFT-LC touchscreen, the main keyboard, four programmable buttons on the Function strip (24 programmable buttons throughout the entire keyboard), number pad and a "3-part active palm rest and two wrist rest" extension.
Listen: I don't care how you spend your money. If you want to drop $300 on a keyboard so you can be the best gamer you can be, go for it. But if that thing sucks you into the Matrix don't email asking me to save you. Text me bro, that qualifies as an emergency.
