Razer ProType iPod Dock
Razer is most commonly associated with gaming mice and other hardware focused on the PC enthusiast crowd. The company recently launched its Pro|Solutions line as a way of overcoming its reputation as a niche manufacturer. A sigificant new addition to the lineup arrives soon with the introduction of the Pro|Type multimedia keyboard. Though its functionality is similar to other high-end keyboards, including dedicated media buttons and 10 programmable keys, what distinguishes this model is its centerpiece iPod dock. Users can not only charge and sync their iPod through the keyboard, but also play its music through a line-out jack. The keyboard is compatible with both Mac and Windows systems; there is no word on either pricing or availability.
