  • Additional USB cable connects the USB pass-through port to its own input for 100% power throughout and data speed. Plug in a device to charge or plug in a mouse to charge your adversaries

Features Overview

The Logitech G413 Carbon has a full set of function keys, but the keyboard does not have any media control buttons, which can give you reason to pause while you are in the middle of a game. However, the keyboard also has a cable pathway where you can connect your headphones so it does not completely neglect the clear necessity for media.

The lighting adjustments of the keyboard can be adjusted from keys on the keyboard. The keyboard does offer backlighting, which makes all the keys very visible. Visible keys make it easier for you to find the necessary keys while you are playing.

Only one color is offered for backlighting (silver or red depending on the keyboard you buy). Because there is only one color, there is not playback lighting available, which can be a big deterrent for some.

The Logitech G413 Carbon is built to be durable. It has a durability of up to 70 million keypresses. To even further increase the durability of the keyboard, it has a brushed aluminum-magnesium alloy top. Durability is crucial to any intense game play, and this keyboard comes braced for the challenge.

Design

The keyboard you choose will work better for you if you like the way that it looks. In our Logitech G413 Carbon review, we considered how the design has as much impact on the gaming experience as the features that the keyboard offers.

The keyboard strives to mirror the intensity of the games that you play on it. There is not an external shell on the keyboard. Instead the powerful looking base and backlighting of the keyboard are seen fully. There are two different colors offered. There is a black keyboard with vibrant red backlighting. There is also a steel colored keyboard with white backlighting.

While the two looks are awesomely fierce, the lack of an external shell means that there is no protection surrounding the keys. This can give the appearance of the keys seeming to stick up. This, however, is not so much of a problem as it is a personal preference.

The frame is also incredibly thin and lightweight. A lightweight keyboard allows for more engaging and agile gameplay. The durable yet lightweight frame is why the Logitech G413 Carbon is one of the best keyboards on the market.

Performance

The performance of the Logitech G413 Carbon is hard to beat when it comes to online gaming. The keyboard is nothing if not incredibly fast. It has 1.5mm short-throw actuation, which is impressive to say the least.

Response time can be all the difference between a win and a loss. The incredibly quick short-throw actuation time has been programed to give you the best response time possible and as much of a leg up in competition as possible.

There are also a variety of nearly silent Romer-G switches and faceted key caps. These faceted keycaps can be used to replace the first five number keys with keys that are specifically geared towards gaming.

The Romer-G switches are also incredibly durable, which gives you one less thing to worry about while you are trying to play your best game. They are said to endure up to 70 million actuations. The Logitech G413 Carbon’s ability to transform to what you need it to be is part of what makes it a stand-out keyboard.

Therefore, this gaming laptop from Razer could arguably be considered to be one of the best desktop replacement that you would be able to carry around. From the perspective of comfort and power, we have found ourselves to feel right at home from the very beginning. This is because this laptop would be vibrant and roomy for any kind of production work that you would require.
So, if a gorgeous quality, portability, incredible keyboard, and build quality would be some of the main determining factors for your next buy, then the Razer Blade Pro would be absolute value for your money.

Gigabyte Aero 14
There is no doubt that gaming laptops from Gigabyte have always managed to offered superb performance which could be packed in a portable and thin package. That is why it was good to see that Aero 14 was also no different. As a result, it has managed to stand above its counterparts with better numbers in benchmarks; that too at an affordable price.

Therefore, if you are on the lookout for a good and stable 17-inch gaming notebook on the market, then this one would undoubtedly be a good buy. That being said, this would seem like a pretty good replacement for a compact desktop. However, it would not be suitable for people who would find themselves to be always on the run.

Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming
As far as aesthetics are concerned, you would find this laptop to be so red that it might even blind you momentarily. However, when you get back to normal, you would also agree that this would be one of its most eye-catching features. The palm rest and keyboard deck has been made black with red color accents on the keyboard. All this would be complete with a red backlight. As for those people who would like to go with a more subtle look, an all-black variant has also been made.
Weighing only six pounds and just being an inch thick, anyone and everyone would be able to tell that you are carrying a Dell laptop in your backpack.
Other than all this, we would also like to point out that the hinge on this laptop would undoubtedly be the best hinge that has been used by us in a while.

Thus, despite everything that Dell has to offer in this notebook, there is no denying the fact that it is in need of a major upgrade. However, it does do an excellent job of the everyday needs of computing while also keeping up with the demands of computer games.

This laptop has overcome its shortcomings with its affordable price point and powerful performance. All in all, this would definitely be a trade that you would be willing to make.

Ever since Nvidia 10-series Pascal GPUs seem to have entered the scene, you would not have been able to find many powerful and affordable gaming notebooks. That being said, that would actually have been quite a bummer because you must have had a very hard time making your choice with the limited range that you had at disposal.
