    Am I missing something? The shape is just...inexplicable, but the great big chunk of black plastic hardly looks like the most comfortable thing to rest your wrists on either.

    As we've seen with the recent press releases, numerous companies have discovered that lamers are gullible and will buy anything purported to be cool.

    Actually, from what I heard, this one was designed by CM US... :shadedshu
    The handle is supposed to make it look like a "rifle" or some kind of "weapon"... go figure, but the US office was apparently very adamant about the design from what I was told...

    Yeah they do. And the print on the keys look really ugly. Think white base boards on black keys is sexy, but this..... this is just too much.

    It had everything going for it that I wanted to hear, then I saw the pictures. I couldn't care less about the whole aluminum plate thing, but the non removable wrist rest is a deal breaker.
