I'm not too sure about that touch button pad under the spacebar, but it does look like it has potential. I'll be honest in saying I'd 10x quicker just get a BlackWidow which retails for less. They look almost identical, and as long as you have some macro capabilities, I don't see the real draw of this.

But it's a MMO keyboard, Rob. WoW fanboys will fall all over themselves just to have something that is caters to the MMO market. I can see the new Naga doing well too with that group even though something simple will likely do the job just as well.
