...I wonder if anyone would care to link to one or two examples...
Actually, the OP was quite clear that he wanted links to examples, not inlined ones.

[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
LanX has a shaming laptop
[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
[ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.
