Razer Turret keyboard/mouse combo perfect for PC gaming on the couch, out now

It’s like Razer know exactly what I need before I do. The prolific peripheral manufacturer is now shipping the Razer Turret, a keyboard/mouse combo that will allow PC players the freedom to play from the couch.

While a number of other companies have produced lapboards of this sort before, Razer’s caters specifically to the gaming market. The primary concern — in the sense that is a gaming device — is that the product is wireless, traditionally a deal-breaker for PC players.

Razer addresses this head-on by building bluetooth connectivity right into the device for consoles, and 2.4GHz wireless connectivity via dongle for PC. On top of this, Razer boasts a battery life of up to four months thanks to built-in high capacity lithium polymer batteries, but your mileage may vary depending on usage.

The package comes with the elongated keyboard, featuring chiclet-style anti-ghosting keys and the included mouse sits at 3500 dpi and pulls a respectable 40-hour battery life under continuous use.

The press release also contains the funniest, most 90’s hardcore PC Master Race merchandising line I’ve read in a release in years and I have included it below for your delectation:

“The performance of the Razer Turret rivals desktop-grade gaming hardware, providing a tactical weapon that can be unleashed on opponents from a casual environment.”

Just exquisite.

If you’d like to find out more about the Razer Turret, you can head over to the official site right here. No Australian pricing has been announced as yet, but Razer Turret is currently selling for US159.99 on the American version of the site. We’ve reached out to Razer Australia regarding Australian pricing and will update this story should they respond.
