Around this time of year, everyone rolls out gift guides - suggestions for what to buy for the special, computer-loving people in your life. But we think that such guides sorely underserve one crucial but oft-ignored demographic: the filthy, stinking rich.
To remedy this pattern of neglect, we’ve put together the ultimate gift guide for recipients for whom the word “budget” holds no meaning: Here are 10 pieces of PC paraphernalia with price tags that push the boundaries of rational expense. We’re not talking about cheesy solid-gold mice and diamond-encrusted cell phone cases that nobody actually buys, either. The products on our list are legitimately awesome (though not exactly great bargains).
Razer DeathStalker Ultimate
For the highest-tech keyboard available, check out the Razer DeathStalker Ultimate. It features the same Razer SwitchBlade UI found on the high-end Razer Blade gaming laptop: 10 programmable keys with built-in displays, and a 4-inch LCD touchscreen that doubles as a trackpad. Additional features include custom-color backlighting, on-the-fly macro recording, and 10-key antighosting.
The Deathstalker Ultimate even gets in on the app craze, as Razer offers a handful of apps that function solely on that LCD touchscreen. Basics such as Facebook, Gmail, and YouTube are there, but gamers should skew toward game-specific apps that help with titles like Battlefield 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Keyboards don't get much blingier than this.
