Zalman Reveals Mouse that could be Deceptacon in Disguise

If I had to give an award to a company with the coolest looking hardware, I’d definitely give it to Zalman. Obviously this is purely subjective, but Zalman’s designs are full of pure techno awesomeness (Thank you Po for that word!). It will come as no surprise that Zalman is still living up to that reputation with the new arrival of the Knossos ZM-GM4 Gaming Mouse. Looks aren’t everything though. Many hardware enthusiasts will overlook some performance and functionality if the aesthetics are just right, but this mouse doesn’t seem like it’s sacrificing either. As expected, it has numerous programmable buttons, an adjustable weight tuning system, durable Omron switches and a few more typical features; however, it’s the Transformer type feature that really grabbed my attention. The grip can be adjusted from three places to perfectly fit any hand! If the picture wasn’t enough to make this look like it belonged in a Michael Bay film, the video definitely tops it off showing full rotational views and the mechanical movements. I’m not totally sure whether this is just a new mouse release, or a Deceptacon plot to invade the homes of the world populous, but I can’t help wanting one. The style obviously won’t be for everyone. Also, without any pricing, it’s hard to determine a value. On the other hand, if you like everything on and around your computer desk to have that pure techno awesomeness flare, I’m s...



MSI Unleashes Domination with the Help of NVIDIA

Geronimo was one of fiercest Native American Warriors known today. He led numerous successful raids, eluded capture many times, and became one of the greatest pillars in trying to preserve the Native American way of life. It seems fitting then that MSI has named one of it’s newest gaming notebooks after the tribe Geronimo came from. These deadly new instruments are powerful, while remaining super efficient, and much like the Warrior in battle, these devices plan on taking no prisoners. Please welcome the MSI GT Dominator and the GE Apache Gaming Notebooks! The phrase “Gaming laptops” almost seems like an oxymoron. Gaming brings in the sense of power draining, but laptops need battery efficiency. This leaves a delicate balance for a manufacturer to straddle because if the device is powerful, it has to stay plugged in lest it die in an hour. On the other hand, if there isn’t any useful hardware, the gaming experience suffers. This is where the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 800M series GPUs come in. If you haven’t already guessed, this is Maxwell architecture. The GTX 750 Ti already showed some impressive performance for remarkable power consumption. These mobile GPUs are primed to follow that lead so that, combined with Intel Haswell technology, a gaming experience can still have a decent battery life. If that was the only exciting thing about these laptops though, it would only be a matter of time before that became the mainstay of every gaming noteboo...
