to get our hands on a few pictures of OCZ's new addition to the Alchemy series lineup, the Elixir II keyboard. Unlike the previous Elixir keyboard, which is a rather normal keyboard with ten macro and 16 additional media/internet keys, the new Elixir will be a rather compact, slim and lightweight keyboard.
The new Elixir II keyboard will have a slim design and it will weigh around 600g (1.35lbs). The only three new keys are Internet, Email and System Power-down which can usually be found on many keyboards. The new Elixir keyboard will feature rubberized coated "SoftTouch" keys with a lifespan of 5 million cycles.
OCZ is still sticking to the black and blue color scheme but as you can see from those pictures below, blue is represented as a thin border line, and we must admit that it looks good. The keyboard is first going to be available for the U.S. market, and EU should get it before Christmas.
According to what we've learned, this keyboard should retail at a €20-€30 price tag, if not even cheaper. The previous Elixir is a decent budget gaming keyboard and we doubt that the new Elixir will be any different.
Here are the pictures.
