Lenovo offers several versions of the Erazer X700 Gaming System, ranging in price from $1,399.00 to $3,999.00.

The version we have here is one that’s only available at Best Buy, and costs $1,699.00. Other configurations are available on Lenovo’s web site.

The system includes a backlit rubber-dome USB keyboard and multi-button gaming mouse.
The keyboard’s lighting matches the system lighting; the lighting intensity can be smoothly adjusted with the rotary control by the media buttons.
The mouse has a number of programmable buttons, including handy “+” and “-” buttons to adjust the resolution on the fly.
The mouse also has removable weights so you can adjust the “feel” of the mouse to your liking. Lenovo includes a small tin for storing unused weights.
Other items include a power cord, a driver disk, and slender manuals for the system, keyboard, and mouse. Speaking of the system, let’s take a look at it starting in the next section.
