Microsoft Arc Touch? Microsoft Wedge Touch? Razer Orochi?
(Notice anything that they all share?)
(Oh no, not again...)
I think I'll wait for a while, save up, and splurge on the Orochi when the time comes. In the meantime, to replace my broken wireless mouse, I'm using a cheap $15 old-school wired mouse that at least fits my hands. Something Microsoft. (Any cheaper, and I'd looking at totally unsafe shapes from a no-name brand)
I think I need to get some folders and racks to get my desk and stuff organized at this rate.
Is a gaming mice that looks like regular office mice an oxymoron?
I've seen the Razer Orochi gaming mice, and to be honest, it ticks almost every point in my checklist, aside from "not looking tacky in class besides a Mac".
Have you ever had buyer's remorse for any reason in the past? I've recently begun to think, maybe I could trade in this ultraportable and go standard laptop lately. Hmm... Decisions, decisions. Sure, it'll be more powerful and on the cheap, but I won't be able to hold it OK-ish with just one hand... And fan noise... Yeah, a bigger hard disk drive, but...
Wait a second, since I am using the MacBook Air as a Windows machine anyway... Maybe I should start Lion Recovery, (I've already backed up everything I need on the laptop), wipe everything and restore the Mac to factory OS and settings. I think there might be a beefier machine, seeing as I overestimated my own need for portability.
This might be the shortest stint I have ever had with a laptop, but there's always on concern for me with regards to laptop trackpads. The Air's trackpad is nice indeed, but I can't shake off the feeling that I'm basically using 2011 hardware today, due to my incredibly poor purchasing timing.
I think I'll be hauling my MacBook Air along with charging cables and the brick to shops for appraisal.
If you want to add something, I will read the edit. You don't need to post two VMs, lol.
I thought about getting an Apple Wireless Aluminium Keyboard for my iPad, considering I use it for forum posts and long replies so often. Autocorrect is not too bad (you can turn it off on the iPad, but it's more use than harm), but typing on a screen still isn't anywhere near using a proper keyboard.
Lol, I'm clearly kidding. Lighten up dude. I blame my avoidance of emoticons for thr misunderstanding, lol. I definitely care about higher end gear more than most, but I understand that many if not most people don't see the need or can't justify spending the cash. I can justify it because it's my hobby.
Yeah, it was alternating between perfect and server error 500s for me. All good now, it seems.
I'm not just thinking about the gaming side. Otherwise I'd just stick with the Lycosa.The MX Browns are mechanical switches for typing. Reds and Blacks are the "gaming" switches.
The main thing for gaming is quick and defined actuation. For typing, you want actuation feedback and smooth and consistent keypresses. A mechanical board with Browns fulfils all of these criteria.
Still, gaming is 80% of what my desktop gets used for. Most of the typing work gets done on my Macbook. Hell, I only installed MS Office on my desktop a few months ago. So it makes sense for me to focus on the gaming side entirely. But even so, a nice keyboard is still a nice keyboard - it's all in the keys. I still retain that Logitech keys feel like crap. I don't mind good scizor scissor keys (like some laptops), but they're hit and miss. The only current laptops that feel any good to type on for me are the Apple, Acer and Alienware keyboards. Toshiba and HP in particular are putting out rubbish and you're stuck with your keyboard for a laptop.
