Corsair's new Bulldog chassis are now available, offering convenient small form-factor solutions for high-performance living room gaming. The manufacturer also revealed its new Lapdog mechanical keyboard and mouse combo
Described as "a highly ventilated, stylish compact console, created for the living room," Corsair's Bulldog case won major CES innovation awards and has ample space to fit full-length 300mm video cards for 4K gaming and VR. Corsair has teamed up with MSI to make the all-in-one liquid-cooled Hydro GFX GeForce GTX 980 Ti video card exclusively for the Bulldog. The mini-ITX chassis comes outfitted with a Hydro Series H5 SF CPU liquid cooler and a SF600 600W 80 Plus Gold power supply
Corsair has also revealed the Lapdog, a performance-grade portable mechanical keyboard designed to compliment the Bulldog. The Lapdog has three different configurations--the base board that can slot in mechanical keyboards and mice, as well as the Lapdog K65 RGB model with Cherry MX Red switches and the K70 with Cherry MX Red/Blue switches.
The Bulldog chassis is now available for $299 USD, and the complete Bulldog PC builds are coming in Q3 2016. The Lapdog is priced at $119 for the base board, and $249 for the K65 RGB and K70 MX Red and Blue variants.
