    Corsair has released a Cherry MX Red mechanical keyboard, the K63 Wireless. It's a fairly handy keyboard being wireless, of course, it is lacking the numeric keys. So why is this an attractive buy,...

    Ugly design is ugly.

    Myeah the missing numeric keys bring in a certain look but it's really designed for this ...

    I wouldn't buy any keyboard that's over £60. It's a few bits of plastic that can be constructed for a pittance of the price they sell it for. And for the small amount of difference it makes to gaming, there's no point in paying over the odds

    That's what I meant. I do not mind absence of num keypad much. Except, that it should decrease price. My keyboard is 1.2kg block. (Not really something I would like to use anywhere outside desk.)

    keyboard 1.1kg looks like 60% of space, so entire thing + mouse should be like 1.6kg. (I would not call it comfortable.)

    Actually, I'm testing it as we speak, really I'm having a blast playing GTA-V on my 65" Ultra HD telly. The lapboard has a soft foam under it, very comfy and I am not at all bothered by its weight (1.65kg in total) as that padding spreads the weight. Anyway, with a bit of luck, I'll have a small review ready for tomorrow.

    Is mouse pad surface replaceable? Is it durable? (Well, I'll probably learn it tomorrow.)

    Got one of these w/ the lapboard through amazon @ the end of January.

    I had recently consolidated my best computer gear in my HTPC and made a computer for my brother out of the spare parts.

    We use a floating 23" monitor in various places and the big 60" and for both gaming and general productivity its just a much nicer experience than the Macguyver like solutions we'd been cobbling together with what was at hand around the apartment.

    When I have something long-ish to write or gonna be doing more stuff on the computer for a while - I bust out the lapboard and its super nice!

    I dont have that good a wireless mouse yet so I havent used it for all that much gaming since I do a lot of controller based games. Im saving my run through on Bioshock Infinite for when I get a decent mouse! That said as mentioned its really comfy on the lap and feels like a lot of space for mousing.

    Yes - the pad is replaceable.
