Razer Deathstalker Ultimate PC keyboard announced

In the fall of 2011, Razer released the Razer Blade laptop, which contained an LCD trackpad along with buttons on a keypad above it that had LED displays. Both were run by Razer's own Switchblade user interface. Today, the company has announced a new PC keyboard that incorporates both the trackpad and the LED keypad found in the Razer Blade.

The new Razer Deathstalker Ultimate keyboard will allow users to put in any image in the 10 LED keys, thanks to the company's Synapse 2.0 software. The LCD trackpad will also come with a number of pre-loaded widget apps for people who want to do some other tasks while gaming on the big PC screen. Apps to access Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, a web brower and more will be included.

The Razer Deathstalker Ultimate keyboard will be released in September for $249. The company will also sell a regular version of the Deathstalker keyboard, without the special trackpad or LED keys, in the fourth quarter for $79.99.

Razer also announced that it has released an SDK for the Switchblade UI, allowing third party apps to be made for the Switchblade UI used in the Razer Blade laptop and the Deathstalker Ultimate keyboard, along with Razer's Star Wars: The Old Republic keyboard.

I still love my logitech illuminated, so price dependant the NON LCD version of this might be a good buy for me.

Otherwise, I really like the look of the Corsair K60 keyboard.. but it's not backlit the M60 mouse is awesome I bought one yesterday.

whatever.... i'm sorry but when you are gaming you can't have your mind on the keyboard lcd screen and watch your stats or w/e.
the moment you do you get pwned

Still seems to be non mechanical :?

Seems if it has a screen they dont add the mechanical part to the keyboard

Yeah, I don't understand how they would ask for that premium and not have mechanical keys, if what you say is true.

If you have mushy dome keys on a 300$ board, it just isn't worth it. It won't last half as long, and it will type like crap. At that price I'd expect Topre quality switches.
