Razer Orochi Mobile Mouse

Introduction and Specifications

Razer Orochi Mobile Mouse


When you decide to purchase a computer there are two main choices that have to be made. Do you go for a Desktop system which has the benefit of being hugely powerful for your money and upgradable, but a bit of a non-transportable monolith. Or do you go the compact and bijou route of a laptop which looks great in the local coffee shop, is useable on the train, but hideously expensive for the amount of power you get.

If you fancied playing something that required a little more oomph than Commander Keen or Freecell, then really you had to go desktop. Thankfully modern advances in performance and pricing have meant that although they are still expensive you can get a decent laptop for a reasonable amount of money. Unfortunately the hardware side pretty much stopped there. It's portable, but if you wanted great sound and a good gaming mouse you best pack a large suitcase.

Razer have seen this yawning chasm in the market and designed the Orochi to be all the gaming mouse you can require, with the compact size necessary for easy portability.

I really like the scroll wheel on this mouse. I like how it looks like it's just kinda floating there. Too bad this thing is so expensive. And the size is a bit too small. I have a Deathadder and I usually have part of my palm on the mousepad and my fingers still reach the end of it. :/Quote
