    The copy about the new keyboard up there says, " For that additional comfort, all our Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 keyboards come with a plushy leatherette wrist rest.' =)

    Do my eyes deceive me? Are we finally getting a wrist rest and new switched??? Thank you baby Jesus! I am excited but sadly the orange switches are sold out!

    We don't have any updates to the BlackWidow Tournament Edition at this point of time. The wrist rest is currently bundled with the Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 keyboards - the Orange, Green and Yellow Switch variants.

    [QUOTE="The new Razer Mechanical Yellow Switch offers a consistent and smooth keypress without the tactile bump to overcome. With a low actuation point and force to actuate, the Razer Yellow Switch is silent, sensitive and like the rest of our gaming Switches, deadly.[/QUOTE]

    I work with severely handicapped students, mostly children with Autism, and a many of my students are tactile defensive. I have, and have had, a few who will not use my desktop computers because they do not like the feel or the sound, I am not sure if it is one or the other or both, I usually can not let these same students use my laptop because they throw them, so I have gone through SOOOO many keyboards trying to find one that will work. Maybe this is the one?

    I know you do student discounts, do you do teacher discounts as well?

  5. Am I the only one who thinks the new font is ugly?? I mean, every keyboard in the world use that font, it's so "standard".

    I really like the old Blackwidow font better, wish I could just get the wrist rest separately.

    Just in case you guys decide to make a TE edition for the BlackWidow Chroma V2, here are 2 things I would LOVE to see :
    _ Audio-out/mic-in jacks. I've found myself wished that I have the full size BW just because of this so many times ...
    _ Wrist rest included.
    And as usual, great job with the BlackWidow Chroma v2.

    It's very big and very expensive... But I think the quality is good.
    I prefer my Ornata Chroma :) But nice product.

    Damnit, I couldn't decide on blackwidow or ornata because I wanted the size of the blackwidow tournament edition but I wanted the arm rest of the ornata. Got the tournament edition then you release v2 :frown_: #feelsbadman

    Well it seems like those images that were leaked on here are real.
    Also, Just another question since don't think it was answered yet, Is the wrist rest on the keyboard magnetic like the ornata or does it just sit there?

    Two things:
    1. Next time, please, please, PLEASE put the pass through on the other side of the keyboard. If it is on the right side, any larger cables that do not have a 90˚ jack will get in the way of your mouse.
    2. Can there be like an exchange program for people with older versions? I have the version before that, and this is a pretty hefty purchase to almost anyone. If we could exchange the older models, even for a small fee, such as $20 or $30.

    Doubt they will have any kind of program like that. This is one of the ways they make there money, By getting people to buy the newer versions of stuff. If they did have a trade in program, They would most likely be loosing a fair bit on money.

    It looks like it will:

    And I was wondering about if the wrist rest is magnetic also since it doesn't say anywhere on Razer's site, but on other sites that posted reviews today they all say it is.
