Apoptosis stop your killing me . That keyboard and the RaptorX drives just got moveded onto my must use on high performance pc for 2006.The other product I moved to must have and use is a 24"samsung LCD.

These 3 items are going to add $2000+ dollars to my water cooled gamers.

The keyboard will add Whatever the cost.

The Raptor X will add $1000 + since I am going from 2 HD raid 0 to four drive raid 5. Plus i have to redsign my case to show off the watercooled RaptorX drives COST ????

I sold 51 watercooled gamers in 2005 37 AMD and 14 Intel. Since I don't sell sli machines I was able to keep cost of these machines at just under $5000.

I will contiue selling the old sytel gamer untill Intel conroe appears in july.

After CONROE COMES OUT I WELL SWITCH TO intel ONLY and ATI xf ONLY MACHINES AT WHICH TIME i WILL USE THAT NEW KEYDOARD and the 4 raptorX HD'S the 24" LCD and the redisgened case to show off the harddrives. Est . New Intel ATI gaming PC $7500.

2005 was my best year ever. I just hope that these prices don't kill me ! :finga:

I own Raid Computers. I use to sell online at Raid Computers com . But I spent to much time with people that wanted a $500. PC. I don't do those nor can I compete with Dell on cheap PC's.

It was slow the first three years !st year sold 6 gamers . second year sold 8 . 3rd year 29 gamers and last year 51 gamers. I was hoping for 75 gamers this year but when swith to the Intel ATI only machines it coukd have a adverse effect on that part of my business.

When I switch to the new INtel ATI XF only machines I would be very happy to deliver one to your site for a review . I can tell you this you will be amazed at what I sell . The intake air on the new 2006 design is actually a air cleaner like the use in submarines. Your review would have nothing but praise tell we get to the $$$$.

Hey I think the main thing you have to sell on the cheap pcs is that you would use name brand low end parts. because you have to admint the parts dell uses are straight cheapest they can find on there 300 to 500 dollar range.

I have built about 6 - 600 buck low end computers that came to me rather then dell. Even after i suggested dell for cheap parts. With me after buying parts i ended up with just under 500 in parts.

Not telling you what to do just telling you how i go about it.

Sorry to bump such an old thread, but it's for the best.

I'm currently in Europe and can confirm i viewed a final production version of the keyboard yesterday. A media release will follow in 5 days.

It came out exactly as it was concepted. Flawlessly.

how the hell do you pop the keys off to clean your keyboard?
Do you really take all your keys off to clean your keyboard?!
I know I don't. Just turn it upside down, shake it a little bit, blow into the keys, turn it back right side up, then wipe the dust off it; that's how I do it at least...
I just use a can of compressed air... it works like a charm. Make sure you do it outside tho, because dust and crud goes flying everywhere.

About that Optimus OLED keyboard, it looks really cool, but the price will obviously play a major factor in if I buy.

Funny, I just saw something on TV about this keyboard like 2 days ago, it looks great and it can show whatever you want on the keys which is pretty cool, too bad OLED costs so much atm :?
