Corsair Released Its First-ever Gaming Laptop With Ten Customizable S-Key Shortcut Buttons
Corsair released its first-ever gaming laptop. The newly launched Voyager a1600 is a force of AMD, equipped with both Ryzen 6000-series processors and AMD Radeon RX 6000 series. It also has a prominent feature to boot: a custom 10-keyed shortcut row.
The row of shortcut buttons lines above the keyboard deck. Corsair specifically described it as "ten easy-access customizable S-key shortcut buttons." It essentially adds extra keys to the keyboard without replacing the function row-a decision made by other manufacturers that received a mixed reception.
The S-keys are enabled by Elgato Stream Deck software. For a streamer that travels, it can potentially be useful for binding various live streaming controls, such as switching scenes, launching media, and adjusting audio. Generally, it can work conveniently as a Zoom meeting controller. For gaming, the options are vast.

Alongside, the Voyager will also include a full-size Cherry MX low-profile mechanical keyboard with per-key RGB backlighting as well as a 1080p FHD webcam. Prospective buyers will be able to choose between a Ryzen 7 6800HS and a Ryzen 9 6900HS - both configurations come with a Radeon 6800M GPU.
You can have up to 64GB of RAM (Corsair Vengeance DDR5) and 2TB of storage. The device also spans a 16-inch 2560 x 1600, 240Hz display and two Thunderbolt 3 USB 4.0 ports, one USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, and one SDXC 7.0 card reader, and one audio jack.
Corsair is best recognized as a contender in the desktop arena. With its recent acquisitions of Elgato, custom PC builder Origin, and peripheral manufacturer Scuf Gaming, the company appears to be in a stable bearing to expand its products for users who don't plan to build their own units.
