Check out the options in Coretemp to display the loads/temps on your G15 LCD. Tres cool.

Friggin noce Mouse too for $55....Optical at 1600 DPI is plenty fast enough!! Can't see that the laser would have been worth the additional $30...
Another nice feature with this Keyboard is that
i can plug my USB Ikari into the Keyboard, no need for the USB extension to reach the tower....nice!

The Ikari laser isn't just better because of the sensor, it is because how it doesn't need drivers to function.

But as long as you are happy that is all that matters.

The Optical Ikari does not require Drivers to "function" either....and yes, I am very happy with it!

Not exactly. I can plug my Ikari Laser in to any computer and have all the buttons setup the same way, the DPI set to the same, all without having to install drivers. I installed the software for it about 8-10 Vista installs ago, and haven't yet, because it has already been setup once to my liking.

8 to 10 Vista installs? I can't help but ask...

I love the G-15. That little screen can do all sorts of fun things.
