Razer intros Anansi MMO gaming keyboard

By on October 26, 2010, 6:55 PM
Razer has unveiled the perfect companion for its 17-button Naga mouse: a keyboard tailored for MMO gamers. The Anansi has 100 programmable keys with support for on-the-fly macro recording and it can store up to 20 profiles. Additionally, it has seven thumb modifier buttons below the space bar, providing a seemingly infinite number of options.

The Anansi looks similar Razer's BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard, though it doesn't have mechanical switches. Common features include five gaming macro keys on the left, while controls for media, lighting and gaming mode (deactivates the Windows key) are placed on the function keys. The Anansi also sports backlit keys, except it has multi-color LEDs.


Razer has priced its latest offering at $100/100 and it's expected to ship worldwide in December -- the same general timeframe as the company's BlackWidow and StarCraft II keyboards. Preorders aren't open just yet, but they ought to be "soon" according to Razer.
