Why is it important: The new K70 Pro Mini Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard has a 60 percent form factor, which means it doesn’t include “extra features” like a numeric keypad, arrow keys, and navigation key group. The limited functionality may not appeal to everyone, but those with limited desktop space or people who travel frequently often find the compromise justified.
