Thanks but the TarTarus's d-pad is like a joystick now, I prefer the actual d-pad function of the Nostromo as I use it for selecting weapons, i need the very positive up/down/left/right as oppose to the bowl of custard that is the joystick :-) 

Look closer. The v2 goes back to the Nostromo D-pad style unlike the joystick style of the Orbweaver.

 

The little domed, button shape on the D-pad is removable leaving the concave shape of the old Nostromo.

Yeah but isn't it's movement still like a joystick and not an 8 way dpad? If it's still an 8 way setup I'll buy one.

 

I'll check it out, thanks, hopefully it's actually the old dpad style.

It's is like the old 8 way D-pad style. I prefer it like that as well. Not being a console gamer I dislike controlling joysticks with my thumbs.

I use a nice MSI GS60 gaming laptop that's a few years old but still very good. I use it mainly as a desktop with the ability to travel with it if need be. So 95% of the time it's on my desk connected with a monitor and keyboard/mouse. Monitor is a 24" BenQ connected with mini display port to DVI active adapter in order to run 120hz. Have to do this because the laptop doesn't have a DVI port and HDMI can't run more then 60hz, which I can't stand. Even when not gaming, 60hz looks like shit to me now a days.

 

- Specs -

Intel i7 4710 2.5ghz

12gb ddr3

NVidia GTX 860m

128gb m.2 SSD

1Tb 7200rpm HDD

 

This gets me around 35-65 fps on Squad with medium/low settings at 1080p. Other new games run better sometimes, like Battlefield 1 I get 50-70fps on medium/high settings at 1080p with resolution scaled down 10%.

 

Razer Taipan ambidextrous mouse which has been fantastic, I know Razer can be hit or miss

 

Corsair K65 LUX mechanical keyboard with cherry mx red switches. My first mechanical keyboard and I love this thing. I'm going to get an even nicer board soon that I will design through one of the custom mechanical brands online. Pricey but you can customize everything and they look more professional.

 

The Corsair ones are pretty cool though, the lighting and macros especially are great. For instance I have a profile just for Squad that turns on when I launch the game. I've lit up only the keys used for Squad (movement orange, voice chat appropriate color, white for text chat and scoreboard, etc) and I have a macro set to Capslock that enables me to sprint without using any keys so I can rest my hands. Squad profile on the board pictured below.

 

I really can't recommend getting a nice keyboard enough. But make sure it's mechanical switches! Go for the legit Cherry MX switches too, not imitators. Red and Green are the most popular. That's not the color of the outside of the key or rhe lights by the way, it's just the name of the different type of switch. it's only colored underneath the key on the actual switch. They have different feels. Read about them, it's pretty cool. Having a nice mechanical keyboard is so helpful though, very smooth and precise.

It was precisely because of this post of yours that I went directly to Newegg after seeing it and bought a Corsair K70 LUX. Holy shit was I missing out all these years. I don't know why I took so long getting a mechanical, but membranes are a thing of the past imho. Plus CUE is incredible. So, thank you.
