Mechanical keyboard is a rare sight on a laptop since it is usually reserved for top-tier gaming laptops. However, the Damansara-based outfit, Illegear has decided to offer such feature on a budget-oriented gaming laptop instead which is called Raven.
According to Illegear, the mechanical keyboard switches which on Raven are developed by the company itself although it didn’t provide further information regarding their performances. Additionally, the keyboard also comes with customizable RGB backlighting.
Meanwhile, Illegear stated that Raven is the direct successor to its budget-oriented Q5 Evo gaming laptop that was released back in February. Aside from the new mechanical RGB keyboard, the company pointed out that the laptop is also 4mm thinner, 300g lighter, and has 23% more battery capacity at 60Whr than its predecessor.
Nevertheless, the Raven does feature several identical components as per Q5 Evo including 15.6-inch FHD display as well as hardware options of up to Intel Core i7-7700HQ, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB, and 32GB RAM. Other than that, the gaming laptop is able to support one 2.5-inch SATA storage drive and two M.2-based solid state drive.
With a price tag that starts from RM 4,099 onwards, customers are able to customize and order the new Illegear Raven gaming laptop directly from the company’s official website immediately.
