It seems that our friends in the Middle Kingdom are getting some serious Razer love as the peripheral maker has just announced an entry-level gaming keyboard that will be sold only in China.

And don't let the term "entry-level" fool you. The Razer Aurantia is about as functional as one can get, with 104 macro programmable keys, special function buttons for gaming mode, profile switching, and 10 software profiles. The main differences from its more expensive Lycosa brethren are anti-ghosting capabilities and backlight illumination, features that are nice to have but not essential.

Priced at 399 yuan (about $58), the Aurantia will be shipping mid-July in China. As an interesting aside, we noticed that the keyboard did not have any Chinese labels. According to Razer, this omission is due to the fact that users on the mainland use the romanized pin yin system to type, and only the Taiwanese require their keyboards to have Chinese characters.
