    According to Linus Tech Tips channel "Short Circuit", the numpad must be docked to the main keyboard to use.

    It all sounds good but if it requires the Armoury Crate software I'm not buying one.

    Re: Asus announces the ROG Claymore II modular keyboard

    I'm a big fan of detachable numpads - I first had that setup with my old Microsoft Sidewinder keyboard 16 years ago and it's great to see them come back.

    I'm currently switching between two keyboards to sole the problem as i have a Huntsman TKL for gaming and a full sized one for work (where the numpad comes in useful!) but its a rather expensive way to solve the problem, so good to see mechanical keyboards with the detachable feature coming to the market

    This was less of an issue prior to working from home (one keyboard was paid for by and lived at work then...so its not quite as extravagant as it may seem!) but given that i'm not likely to even be 100% back at the office, things are a bit different and I can see the need again!
