Aorus Thunder K7 Laser Gaming Keyboard

The Aorus Thunder K7 Laser is not a cheap gaming keyboard. It costs over two thousand Rand. But, heck, it’s got an 18K gold-plated USB connector on a 2 metre cotton-braided cord. That’s in addition to a host of top features.

First off, it is the world’s first mechanical gaming keyboard with detachable Macro keys. It has absolute anti-ghosting multi-key press capability. It has superior Cherry Red MX mechanical key-switch, optimized actuation force of 45g and reduced key actuation distance of only 2 mm. And it comes with the new AORUS Macro Engine that allows on-the-go programming of up to 100 sets of macro with 20 keys.
