Razer refresh mecha-membrane option with new Ornata 2 keyboard

Razer are giving their mecha-membrane keyboard an upgrade.

The new Razer Ornata V2 features additional media keys and the same hybrid switches introduced by its predecessor. As their name might suggests, the mecha-membrane switches on the new Ornata try to mesh together the feel of a membrane keyboard with the sound of a mechanical one. 

In our review of the original Ornata, we said that “the Ornata’s an interesting experiment. For those who want something a bit quieter or with a bit more bounce to the keys, it's worth a try.”

The gaming keyboard also features a leatherette wrist rest plus the usual Razer Synapse and Chroma integration for the per-key RGB lighting on the thing. 

Internationally, the Razer Ornata V2 is priced at US$99. In Australia, pricing starts at AU$189.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
