Gallery: Corsair Lapdog unboxed
We build a keyboard into Corsair's new Lapdog gaming center.

That's one big box.
And here's what you get inside it.
The included cable handles both power and USB connectivity, and the cable itself should be enough to reach across most loungerooms.
This is the lap part of the equation... Wait, what is that?
Some kind of screwdriver? Wait and see.
The padding underneath this half of the lapdog features a gentle curve to sit between your legs. It's good, deep, foam, too.
And the dog portion, I guess you could call it. This is the keyboard-free version - there will be an option to get one with added keyboard.
Sadly the Lapdog is not built ambidextrously. Sorry lefties. But the mousepad is pretty good.
And this is the YAWNING CAVITY WAITING TO BE FILLED. By your keyboard. But how does it fit? (or blend, for that matter?)
It all makes sense! The little metal widget is a hex-screwdriver, and you use it to take the fascia of the lapdog apart.
By panel. Note that panel on the right. Leave it in and you can fit in a ten-keyless keyboard. Take it out and you've got room for a full-size board.
The bottom panel is further reinforced by some very sticky gum. Since this rests under your wrist, it will keep it all in place nicely.
And, unsurprisingly, our Corsair Lux fits perfectly.
Once you remove the mousepad, there's room to coil in the keyboard's cabling, and plug it into the Lapdog itself.
Full marks to Corsair for using good brass inserts for the screws to seat in.
And boom! It's all built.
So how do the two portions connect? Well... it's magnets.These little metal inserts do all the work.
And once complete, it's a pretty hefty unit.
These are let you connect other peripherals to the Lapdog, like a phone or USB sticks...
While this is where power and main connectivity comes in. Thanks for sticking with us, and look out for a full review.
That's one big box.
