Mechanical keyboards used to be only for desktop computer but in the recent years, it has trickled down to gaming laptop and now Razer is showing off the first mechanical keyboard for the iPad Pro. The Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case is designed to work with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and when connected, the keyboard will make the iPad Pro look like a Razer laptop.

The Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case looks strikingly similar to their Razer Blade laptop keyboard but the difference is that Razer has removed the trackpad and included a new ultra-low profile Razer keycaps that has an actuation force of 70g. Additionally, the keyboard also features a backlighting system that has 20 brightness levels.

Probably the biggest disadvantage of the Razer Mechanical Keyboard is that it connects through Bluetooth and not through the iPad Pro's Smart Connector. This means that you will need to separately charge the keyboard case but Razer says that the battery will last up to 25 days on a single charge when the backlighting is turned off.

For what it's worth, the Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case is priced at US$ 169 (~MYR 665) which is same price as the official Smart Keyboard from Apple.
