    "virtually indestructible"

    Warranty: 1-year limited warranty

    Call me skeptical, but...

    I very much like the naming, struck that it's not been used before for anything other than COD.

    Boring, there needs to be a fingerprint reader under every keyboard key and mouse button, so the computer can lock itself if it detects an unauthorised user.

    Of course it disqualifies itself by being Windows 10 only.

    On a related note I find it amusing to what lengths Microsoft goes to push Windows 10 down our throats.

    It's a keyboard, it'll work on anything that supports the relevant Bluetooth standard. I suspect the Win10 refers to using the fingerprint sensor for sign-on, do any prior versions of Windows support that out of the box?

    No fingerprint scanner on a GTX 1050Ti though!
