It's sometimes surprising how long it takes for a relatively simple product to hit the market. In case of the Corsair Lapdog it took twelve months to go from the first teaser announcement to actual product availability.
This aluminium board makes it easier to use your mouse and keyboard in the living room, a Corsair K70 or K65 keyboard can be mounted into the Lapdog and the right side features a 280mm x 280mm texture-finished mousepad area.
All cables and connector can be tucked into a hidden compartment and there's also a four-port USB 3.0 hub so you can connect not only the mouse and keyboard, but also other USB devices like your phone, a flash drive or a tablet.
One big bummer is that the product is significantly more expensive than the $89 MSRP that was shared a year ago. The updated pricing is a whopping $119.99 (129.99EUR) -- and this does not include the mouse nor keyboard.
CORSAIR®, a world leader in enthusiast memory, PC components and high-performance gaming hardware today announced the release of its eagerly awaited LAPDOG portable gaming control center.
LAPDOG brings full-size gaming keyboard and mouse control to the living room, allowing users to mount their choice of CORSAIR K70 or K65 keyboard (not included) into its aluminium chassis, alongside a gaming mouse of choice.
