PC: Probably Computers

Checking Woot! The old morning routine! Just turn on the computer, wait 45 minutes, click Netscape Navigator, wait another 25 minutes, and then it's Woot time, right? Well, you know what? It might be time to get a new computer...

Flexible keyboards look fun, but I'm worried I'll keep hitting that gargantuan Caps Lock key by accident...

From the Alienware specs:

"Alienware’s high-performance CPU liquid cooling delivers up to three metric tons of liquid per minute for every square meter of CPU"

Wow! It's got square meters of CPU!!!

I have one of these keyboards, and the gigantic caps lock key is the best thing about it. They're actually pretty terrible, (keystrokes fail to register, randomly caps locks, etc.) but the giant key is good for a laugh.

Yeah, they do. Just not, you know, well. I bought mine for White Knight Chronicles multiplayer and ended up getting another keyboard because it was so terribad.

Any input on that AOC 22in? I am thinking about picking one up for my desktop... I have a 19in LCD currently and REALLY need an upgrade.

Input? Why yes, it does.

Since that was such a terrible pun, I'll see if I can help by providing a few links to some reviews on Amazon, Google Shopping, and CNET.

That's actually just where the circuits are stored. The Caps Lock that shows on that gigundo-box is the indicator light. You can see the regular caps button right where it should be.

I ordered a couple of the flexible keyboards last time they were up and Woot shipped 'em to the wrong address. AFTER I told 'em they address they sent in their email confirmation was incorrect. Weeks of emails and they just tell me to return the merchandise I don't have...STWOOPID!!

Sorry to hear about this mixup, I've forwarded your post onto Woot Member Services to see if I can't find a resolve for you.

Thank you for patience and the confusion during this matter.

I used to use those flex keyboards for LAN parties. Never broke, but after a while the ink started coming off the heavily used keys (think WASD and surrounding keys) not like that really mattered since I knew where they were anyways.

Only gripe with it was if you were to actually type on it then you'd have to go a little slower because you had to press down a little harder. But it works as advertised. I spilled many a beers on it over the years. ;)

Seems like a slightly better deal at the Egg on a similar Asus model- a bit faster processor, a bit smaller HD and a lower price.
