    Deathstalker. There's tons of potential there!

    - My goal in life is simple: retire early with lots of money. I am nowhere near that, hahaha.
    - Don't have one, honestly.
    - My favorite keyboard at the moment is Huntsman Mini with the purps. I wish we had an orange equivalent. But I freaking love it. I never thought I'd be into a 60%, but given my current living space, it's perfect.
    - 60%, chiclet keycaps, mechanical switches, wireless with full chroma. I know people love their fat key caps, but I used to game on a mac keyboard and I miss the sleek, low-profile and I'm always fat-fingering my keys.

    The AFK's are live community events we host. But with the current pandemic, we probably won't see one for awhile.

    Ah, but you see. You don't finish playing Icebourne. Icebourne finishes playing you.

    Rather than focus on how much in terms of dollars and cents, I will answer with what it affords me since it can change depending on where you live and how you live. I can buy coffee everyday. I go to work with great people and get to come home and play games with them. I get to hang out with friends and engage in all the activities we do without having to worry too much about budgeting. Do I have to budget? Absolutely. Am I big spender? Not at all. I own a Blade. I own a bunch of peripherals that I paid for. I live comfortably. So, it would be unfair for me to throw out a number because it could mean absolutely nothing for some people.

    But HR would insist that I say, "it's competitive" :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    My Blade 15. It's everything I wanted in a pc laptop. It requires a bit of tweaking, but that's to be expected with something so high performance. This could be a hot take but I think a lot of people misunderstand the kind of hardware we're dealing with. And I know we get a lot of mac users who are used to having their Macbooks on the bed, but try that with the Blade and shit goes to hell. It doesn't work the same way. I'll use luxury cars as an example. The question isn't whether you can afford the car. The question is, can you afford the upkeep? Tires cost 10x more. Service costs a higher premium. The parts are more expensive. So, just because you can afford a $45,000 car, doesn't mean you can afford to actually own and care for it. Same goes for the Blade. It's a "laptop" but don't put it on your lap. You'll block the fans. You need the fans because there is some major tech in a small space doing all kinds of science things really fast and it gets hot because physics. You have to know what you're buying into and I think a lot of people take that for granted.

    I have a suggestion, RAZER should start making watercooling products.

    What kind of parent you would be ?
    The kind of parent who would let his child play games even tho he has homework to do ... just because you share the same passion for gaming?
    Or the kind that will be strick about how much time your child should spend on pc... given your work is somewhat pc industry and gaming related?

    *I hope it's not too personal ^^

    Razer should partner up with EK and make water cooling products or team up with Lian Li again And make an AIO with them, This is just a suggestion.

    Could it be that "take the place of Min-Liang Tan" is your most insolent and repressed desire ?

    PS : @Min-Liang Tan : this is purely a joke don't take his words for real. :smiling_imp:

    Ooh, that's tough. I'd love to release something so different and out there. I wouldn't know where to categorize it. Very similar to how Razer has those experimental projects.

    Homework should always be first! After that they can play all they want - or at least until bed time. I'm not the strict parent type.

    Bachelor of Arts in Communications. It's pretty versatile. I think people tend to focus on the brand more than the actual position. I think if you focus on the brand too much you limit yourself, but by focusing on the job position, you'll find that a lot of brands, no matter the industry, have plenty of openings.

    Not even in the slightest. We like Min as our CEO.

    Very! But I think I have to be very clear, the brand is great, but what makes the whole experience even better are the people who work here. Many of them are passionate gamers and this is the core of our brand identity. For Gamers. By Gamers. We're still a business that needs to be run. Work still needs to get done and teams have to collaborate with people who specialize in their field, whether it be finance, human resources and marketing. With that said, yeah, it's pretty freakin' cool to work here. Lunch break and/or late night multiplayer sessions are some of my favorite things we do here.
