It is a great keyboard!
Pros: The keyboard is a full size one, with a correctly-sized "backspace" button. Get it just for that. But it also has the following buttons: calculator (which is quite useful), volume control, mute, media (to open whatever player you use), play/pause, stop, forward, reverse, e-mail, messenger, home, and favorites. These are all quite useful. The round "esc" and "f" buttons are actually nice, because the are in groups, allowing you to not have to look at the keyboard when using them. The legs put it on a nice tilt. The keys have a slight dip, which is great. Its use in gaming is unsurpassed.
Cons: None at all.
Overall Review: I looked at many keyboards before deciding on this. I almost bought a few dollar keyboard, but this is definitely where your money should go. I am very happy with this. It is the best keyboard I have ever used.
Get this for gaming
Pros: It helps to run games wonderfully. It is way faster than the 3400 I had on my laptop. Everything runs fast, programs like LimeWire and media players open nearly instantaneously. Oh, and it is at 30 degrees C idling, and goes to 35 C when in gaming with all settings maxed.
Cons: Absolutely none.
Overall Review: Only two games have the ability to use dual-core, Call of Duty 2 and Quake 4. CoD 2 runs with literally a few more fps, and Q4 runs with fewer fps. And if you will be playing anything else, you are going to have to turn off a core. It is a waste of time and money, so just get this amazing CPU instead of the more expensive ones that are not compatible with anything.
