I like the HyperX Alloy FPS range of mechanical keyboards, that much is fairly Well Documented by now.

This triple-monitor Razer gaming laptop is a thing that actually exists

There are certain things you can rely on from a gigantic tech show like CES — hilariously large TV’s, lavishly appointed electric cars that malfunction onstage, long segments of glitzy big brand press conferences trying to make washing machines seem cool.
