Inside the LAPDOG and Installation Continued
To install the keyboard, you have to angle the front of the keyboard under the LAPDOG frame, sliding it forward as much as possible, and then you can lower the back of it to fit into the frame inside the LAPDOG. We found that you can install the cabling as we did here, but we do suggest wiring it to the floor, as the assembly can be tricky with a thick mass of cable under the cover plate.
We also took this time to plug in the Sabre RGB mouse, as soon the instructions have us buttoning this all back together. Once the mouse pad is back on the LAPDOG, accessing the internal hub is impossible.
After taking another minute or so to reinstall the mouse pad, and the cover for the top edge of the keyboard, our LAPDOG is now complete. The mouse cable runs under the higher section of the cover panel, and if wired correctly, you can gently pull out the right amount of cable to gain full use of the mouse pad area.
At this point, we went ahead and connected the USB 3.0 extension cable, and the 12V input to the back of the LAPDOG. At the other end, we need to connect this to the PC, and also plug in the power adapter to the wall and plug it into the female end of this cable.
In case you happen to choose a keyboard and mouse combination that does not have any lights on them to signify they are on, Corsair offers this tiny LED so that you know that the hub is on. If there are issues, and this LED is on, you may want to recheck your connections to the internal ports on the hub.
With the LAPDOG powered up, the red LEDs glowing on the keyboard, and a multitude of colors pulsating on the Sabre RGB, all that was left was hours of gaming, and gaining an appreciation for this design more and more as we went.
