Tesora's Tizona Mechanical Keyboard Features a Detachable Numpad

A friendly plank for both lefties and righties

It's estimated that around 10 percent of the world's population are left-handed. If you whittle that down to PC gamers, the market quickly shrinks, though that doesn't come as any consolation to left-handed gamers lamenting the fact that most peripherals are geared toward right-handed users. Most, but not all. For example, Tesoro's Tizona mechanical keyboard sports an optional mechanical numpad that can attach to either side of the plank .

"Taking its name after Spanish Hero, El Cid's sword, Tizona allows gamers to choose the setup they want, either a comfortable space-saving tenkeyless or a classic full sized board with the numberpad on either the left or right side," Tesoro explains .

Alternately, you can attach dual numpads to the Tizona, one on each side, and go hog wild with macros. Regardless of how you configure the keyboard, Tizona serves up a mechanical typing experience with laser-etched keys.

Other features include N-Key rollover support (it can be switched to 6-Key rollover if you prefer), three thumb keys (configured as multimedia keys by default), two USB 2.0 ports, 1.8mm braided keys, and a few other tidbits.

Tesora says the Tizona keyboard and numpad will be available in North America soon for $90 and $40, respectively, or as a combo for $109.
