MSI’s new GT80 Titan is the first laptop with a mechanical keyboard

Call us keyboard snobs if you will, but once you’ve experienced the pleasure of typing on a mechanical keyboard, it’s difficult to go back to those squishy membrane planks. Peripheral makers have stepped up to the plate with plenty of mechanical models in the past few years, though MSI gets a virtual high-five for being the first to plop a mechanical keyboard on a gaming laptop.

The mechanical keyboard’s become pretty prevalent in certain gaming circles over the past few years, as more and more people are liberated from their mediocre rubber dome lifestyle. If there’s one area that’s yet to take advantage of the rise of mechanical keyboards, however, it’s laptops. And that makes sense—laptops are on an ever-present quest to get thinner and shed more pounds while gaining performance, which is why most use scissor switches or a modified scissor switch variant.
