White is the new black, not only for PC enclosures, but also for other components and accessories. I’m not sure about this next white-out, though. Cyborg Gaming has launched an Albino edition of its Rat 7 gaming mouse.
The original Rat 7 was released in black, and it just happens to be my favorite mouse of all time. A TR Editor’s Choice award winner, the Rat 7 is still going strong as my primary desktop mouse after nearly a year of continuous use. I can’t say enough good things about its adjustable design, solid button feel, and smooth tracking. The Albino version even boosts the maximum sensitivity by 800 DPI.
White seems like a bad idea for a PC peripheral that’ll be handled constantly, though. Over time, I worry that the pristine surface will develop a yellowish tinge or be irreparably stained by Cheeto dust. Instead of messing around in the paint shop, Cyborg really needs to apply the Rat’s unprecedented adjustability to a quality gaming keyboard that can be split, tilted, and positioned however users see fit. Pretty please. Thanks to Engadget for the tip.
